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
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.
