Climate

The issues and challenges presented by a changing climate can be overwhelming. But that’s why it’s even more imperative to take an action-based approach. Climate change affects every facet of our work and so we must be innovative and forward thinking in everything we do, from the local to the larger scale. Above all, we must root our actions in a firm belief that together we can make a difference.

At the local level, our Net-Zero Building Speaker series brings experienced net-zero builders to share their knowledge about how we can make our buildings sustainable in the long term, while living more comfortably and in a healthier environment. Forty percent of greenhouse gas emissions come from our buildings, so it’s a natural place to start. Our branches also organize climate marches, green drinks and salon-style think tanks. Find out how you can get involved by contacting us.

Landscape conservation is also fundamental. With the growing recognition of climate change as a potential driver for range shifts in a host of species, there has been renewed emphasis on managing for connectivity as a necessary element of climate change adaptation. Maintaining or increasing connectivity is the most widely recommended climate change adaptation measure for biodiversity. Our conservation work is anchored in scientific projections and climate modelling.
