Great to see our community interest company @ClimateActionNE featured in December edition of @iemanet @IEMA_Transform - an excellent all action packed #biodiversity and #nature rich issue. Thanks @sharonmaguire9 @WeAreRedactive #Sustainability #Environment #learning @SharonEnv1
Reading @IEMA_Transform about the challenges faced by @RSPBScotland in protecting some of the last undeveloped species-rich dune habitats against being developed into a golf course. @HighlandCouncil there is no IROPI worth it to destroy this #nature we'll never get back! #SDG15 @AbiBrady
In 2020, amid the global crisis created by the COVID-19 pandemic, we saw numerous cross-sector collaborations involving tech companies, aiming to create smart solutions that would amplify positive environmental and social impacts across sectors and organisations – for example in online healthcare or mRNA vaccine platform technology. This led the public health crisis to be referred to as “the digital accelerant of the decade” by US cloud communications platform Twilio.
The UK's largest defined benefit (DB) pension schemes have received a letter from the Make My Money Matter campaign urging them to set net-zero emission targets ahead of the COP26 climate summit later this year.
New jobs that help drive the UK towards net-zero emissions are set to offer salaries that are almost one-third higher than those in carbon-intensive industries, research suggests.
The UK government's investment plans for green jobs lag far behind those of most G7 countries, potentially undermining its net-zero emissions target, the Trades Union Congress (TUC) has warned.
Three environmental campaigners have launched a legal challenge against the UK government over its support for the production of North Sea oil and gas that is only economic because of subsidies, the Paid to Pollute campaign has announced.
