BCL organizes its outreach to companies by sector
No matter their sector, all companies have a stake in how the world addresses climate change. In the words of Barry Parkin, Chief Sustainability and Health and Wellbeing Officer for Mars (of candy fame, not the planet):
We know we cannot grow and prosper unless the planet, people and communities on which we rely are healthy and thriving.
Any company is liable to suffer climate disruptions, including:
- Supply chain interruptions: product availability, shipping
- Price fluctuations
- Political instability
- Disruptions to business as usual that affect workers and consumers alike, and grind local economies to a halt, including health, housing, food and water, transportation, electricity and gas
- Damage to infrastructure, affecting both internal and external operations
- Increased insurance and other costs
In light of these and other steadily worsening aspects of the climate crisis, our request of businesses both large and small is urgent and simple: Don’t sit on the sidelines. Make a choice. Get involved. And join us.
Led by BCL co-founder Harold Hedelman, the Other Sectors Team engages companies from business sectors for which BCL doesn’t yet have a targeted sector team.
