IMC Worldwide has signed a joint declaration pledging our support to the goals of the Paris Agreement on climate change.
The Paris Agreement (COP 21) saw over 190 countries commit to keeping global temperatures rise to below 2C, to ensuring emissions peak as soon as possible, delivering net zero emissions this century, and backing a system of national climate action plans that will be reviewed every five years.
‘We welcome the global commitment to this Agreement, which is a significant step forward in solving our climate change challenges,’ says IMC Worldwide Managing Director Gavin English. ‘And we are proud to join over 400 other signatories, which include large multinational business, SMEs, investors, business groups, NGOs, religious groups, and city governments.’
IMC will support the Agreement with actions including
- actions we are already taking in head office, on our projects and in the way we operate
- new actions such as tracking carbon emissions, benchmark against competitors and identifying where we can reduce our business carbon emissions (we already track carbon emissions on some of our programmes such as peaks)
- seek funding for work on existing and new projects that contribute to the goals of the Agreement
- learn from what others are doing and apply where appropriate in our business
