How will this benefit me as a PR PRO?

Global Warming and the urgency to “Go Green” is dominating the news, especially with the catastrophic bushfires in Australia at the moment. Fifteen countries have made a parliamentary declaration of a climate emergency, followed by the European Union on November 28, 2019. A declaration is all well and good – but what are big business and governments doing to help tackle the climate crisis?


Every business today is shaped on sustainability and environmental issues – whether you’re aware of it or not. Whether or not you choose to believe in the science behind climate change or are even interested in it, the customers and clients of your business do and are becoming increasingly aware of the threat global warming poses on the human race. It is vital for everyone to be up to date with climate action policy, green business etc. provides updates on the green industry to the general public, from how Vogue Italia and Burger King are changing their brands to make them the greener choice, to how the government, both UK and foreign, are prioritising the environment. They cover stories on the basis that green economy is the “most exciting, most innovative, and most important sector in the UK today”.
