The Pledge for People and Planet is based on and inspired by the following principles:
1 INSPIRE, INFORM, ENGAGE To spread the message and help build understanding, so that everybody knows what steps they too can take to fight climate change.
2 EMPOWERMENT To take urgent action in my own way to help reduce carbon pollution, so that we can all breathe cleaner, cooler air.
3 EVIDENCE-BASED ACTION To follow the best-available science, because evidence-based actions can most effectively ensure a sustainable future for all.
4 TRANSPARENCY & ACCOUNTABILITY To push for transparency and accountability in government and business, because both bottom-up and top-down action is needed to succeed in driving wider systems change.
5 SUSTAINABILITY MINDSET To minimize waste and maximize the reuse and recycling of materials, because by doing both can we reduce our impact on the planet.
6 CONSCIOUS CONSUMPTION To care about who and what I support with my money, because it directly and indirectly shapes the world we live in and helps determine the future of our planet.
7 INNOVATION To support innovation and technology that respect the natural environment, because this is the only way to make our cities, infrastructure and economies sustainable.
