Steps Businesses Can Take Today to Have Positive Impact Business doesn’t have to wait for government to make climate mitigation a priority. In the absence of political action, more public companies are stepping up and leading through their sustainability work and collaborating to enhance its impact. In 2018, with the words “We’re still in,” a group of more than 2,000 U.S. businesses and investors with a combined annual revenue of $1.4 trillion sent a powerful message: While President Donald Trump may have withdrawn the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement, these business leaders did not. Many Certified B Corporations, including Patagonia, Ben & Jerry’s, Big Path Capital and Taos Ski Valley, put their names on the list.
The list is a commitment, but taking action and changing the way business is done is a much harder achievement. The B Corp community has an opportunity to lead by example and spur action around the globe through innovative programs that mitigate climate threats and help their workers and communities adapt to the changes predicted in the 2018 U.N. climate report.
