Facebook has teamed up with Climate Club, a new tool that helps employees in companies track their contributions to climate change. Co-Founder and CEO of Climate Club, Adam Braun, wanted to create the company to help large companies focus on reaching their climate goals. The company is starting to work with Facebook’s parent company Meta along with the management consulting company Bain.
Braun and his co-founder Charm first came up with the idea for the company after watching large companies make bold decarbonization commitments that many employees were ignoring or not involved with. They decided to make Climate Club to help these companies get everyone involved in fighting climate change.
“The simplest distillation of it is that we embed sustainability into the employee experience. And we do so both with alignment towards net zero, as well as true business goals,” Braun told CNBC.
Climate Club helps employees learn what they can and should be doing within their company to help reduce carbon emissions. They provide specific recommendations for how to make the changes. Climate Club even provides employees with data that tracks their contributions to greenhouse gas emissions. It shows employees areas that they can improve in, activities they should focus on, and the best practices to follow. The main focus will be on areas that employees can influence.
Climate Club will also track emissions related to business travel and help make recommendations for employees’ commutes, as well as show them the amount of energy used in remote and hybrid work.
This is an amazing tool and, hopefully, something that will be used by large companies all over. Human-caused climate change is warming our oceans and harming the delicate underwater ecosystems. The single best thing that you can do to help fight climate change is to go vegan. With the latest IPCC report that says it’s ‘now or never‘ to take action against climate change, we need to act fast!
Cities all over the world, from California to Vietnam, are facing a climate crisis, and millions of people are protesting all over the world. Studies have shown that eating more plant-based can add over a decade to your lifespan, it can save the world’s forests, it benefits the environment, and it is significantly better for your health! Nations worldwide have urged people to eat more plant-based to curb climate change.
