Business Declares

By Charlotte Owen-Burge | June 30, 2021

Business Declares is a network of over 100 business members, mostly based in the UK but spanning four continents, who inspire, support and connect businesses to accelerate collective, meaningful action on the climate, ecological and social emergency. As the name suggests, members publicly declare an Emergency and “recognise the complexity of making an authentic climate transition”, the majority committing to reach net zero by 2030. Some of their members include Triodos Bank UK, Pukka Herbs, COOK, Bates Wells and more recently, the Financial Times and Cafedirect.

Business Declares signposts tools for members, shares case studies, connects members to collaborate, and runs a series of thought-provoking events. Business Declares galvanises the business voice to be bolder in speaking out about the crisis, push boundaries and call for regulatory change. Business Declares has been tracking their member progress through a survey, of which they had over 90% response rate and found that over half of their members have completed or are in the process of measuring their emissions, with members also committing to their new commitment on biodiversity.

As of November 2022, Business Declares has 102 members in the Race to Zero.
