The Edinburgh Climate Compact is a commitment by the leading businesses and employers in Edinburgh.
It is a promise to make changes within their own organisation and sector which will support the radical reduction in Edinburgh’s greenhouse gas emissions and contribute to a green recovery for the city.
It is also a chance for organisations to show leadership and demonstrate to rest of the world the power of collaboration and the difference we as a city can make to address the climate emergency
As founders of the Edinburgh Climate Compact, we will convene, catalyse and challenge signatories. We will recognise and celebrate what organisations are doing now and highlight actions they plan to take on their journey to net-zero.
How does it work?
Within the first month of joining signatories will have to:
- Publish their current emissions
- Publicise information on they are currently doing to reduce their climate impact.
They will also be expected to complete a benchmarking sheet and agree to contribute to regular blogs on their progress.
Every quarter, all Climate Champions will be expected to attend signatories meetings to share successes and challenges and offer to host these meetings on a rotating basis.
Every year, signatories will also be required to complete our annual benchmarking sheet.
