How to meet the commitments

There are a range of options to help businesses at each stage of their journey to achieve the commitments in the Climate Change Leadership Statement.

By signing up to the Climate Leaders Coalition, each organisation is committing to:

  • Measuring their greenhouse gas emissions and publicly reporting on them
  • Setting a public emissions reduction target consistent with keeping within 2° of warming
  • Working with their suppliers to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.

The following resources are designed to help organisations deliver on this commitment.
