Climate Justice: Racism and the Climate Crisis are Conjoined Twins

Andy Fyfe May 13, 2021

We know the impacts of the climate crisis largely fall on those who contribute the least to it: Black, Brown and Indigenous communities. The time is now for courageous business leadership to help create a future that serves people (especially the most vulnerable) and the planet. In this conversation we will discuss intersectional environmentalism and identify tangible actions both on the advocacy and mitigation fronts, both businesses and individuals can do, to address the devastating impacts of climate change on our communities and biosphere by tackling racism at the center of it. Attendees will be invited to contribute to the conversation, and walk away with a Climate Justice Playbook put together by some of the leading businesses and non-profits centering equity and justice in their climate action commitments.

Purpose and Desired Outcome

To introduce a Climate Justice Playbook so people can walk away and have tangible steps and stories to support the important work of centering justice and racial equity in their climate action, both at their company and in their daily habits. We also hope to question and counter any assumptions in the work already done to continue to lift up voices unheard and keep up with the evolving climate crisis.
