On Earth Day, 200+ leading tech companies aim to reach 50 million people and engage them to take Climate Action!
Stuttgart, 19.04.2021: For this year's Earth Day on April 22, more than 200 tech companies have launched a joint campaign: Time for Climate Action. As an innovation and design studio, Phoenix Design has the opportunity to draw attention sustainability early in the product development process. We are committed to this, along with several other climate goals for 2021!
The aim of the whole campaign is to reach out to more than 50 million people and trigger 1 million meaningful and measurable actions for the planet. These companies are both taking climate action themselves and encouraging their customers to follow their lead.
Time for Climate Action is an initiative set up by the non-profit organisation, Leaders of Climate Action, taking place April 19th - 25th in honor of Earth Day. Among the campaign supporters are tech companies such as Spotify, Ecosia, BlaBlaCar, Flixbus, Home24, ebay Kleinanzeigen, Cabify, Universal Music, Delivery Hero, Marley Spoon, TIER, Doctolib, Personio, Idealo and many more.
The goal is to increase awareness around the fact that businesses need to walk the talk and that tech companies have a role to play as leaders in the fight against climate change.
“For many companies in our ecosystem, reducing emissions is simply not enough. If we want to have a significant impact, we need to ask ourselves what else we can do. Activating our customers and partners is one way of doing this” — Timo Müller, Co-Founder LFCA.
With the global reach of these tech companies combined, the campaign aims to reach more than 50 million people and trigger 1 million immediate, but impactful actions against the climate crisis. To achieve these goals, participating companies have joined forces to make climate action easily accessible for everyone, as well as to disclose their own carbon footprint and implement carbon reduction measures themselves.
It’s concrete. It’s now.
The campaign reinforces how simple, concrete actions — like reducing your own carbon footprint — is linked to controlling climate change and gives people a sense of empowerment. This impact comes through two main channels:
- The first is through the main campaign page, where all visitors can take quick and easy climate action. In under 10 minutes, the website enables visitors to take a diverse range of actions, including: changing their household power supply to renewable energy; taking climate action in their workplace; switching to a green bank account; planting trees while they browse; demanding change from politicians; measuring and reducing their own footprint; and more. Many of these actions are communicated in an educational, easy-to-share format, like this video which participating companies will share across their social media channels.
- The second is through the company's products and services. Many campaign supporters have built special, climate-friendly features on their platforms, making climate action just one click away for their users. They are educating customers about sustainable solutions in their sector; promoting more sustainable product alternatives; planting trees for every transaction during campaign week; and much more. Each supporter is on a mission to leverage their unique resources.
About Leaders for Climate Action: LFCA is a global community of 1200 digital entrepreneurs, united by the will to counter the climate crisis through their own, concrete actions and to demand more effective legislation from policymakers. Their vision is to turn the digital industry climate neutral worldwide and thus set an example for other industries.
