What can you do to create systemic change?

Demand green energy from your politicians

Ask the politicians you support to take action to phase out fossil fuels and speed up the build-out of green energy technology. Write them a letter or email, contact them on social media, call them or let them know when you vote. Track your country's process on Climate Action Tracker.

Demand green energy from businesses

From banks to beer makers, ask the businesses you engage with what they are doing to reduce their carbon footprint. You can ask them inperson, on social media or view the RE100 list to see if they have already made a commitment to using green energy. If everyone starts asking the question, businesses will start feeling the pressure to speed up green action.

Demand green energy at home

Make the switch to green energy at home and make the smarter choice for our planet. Act now and call your energy provider to ask if they can offer you a green energy solution. If they can't, switch to a green energy provider today.

Demand green energy at work

It can be hard for workplaces to know where and how to start being green. Help your workplace take the first step by talking to your manager about partnering with the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) Green Office to analyse your department's carbon footprint and create a green action plan.

Scientific evidence requires the world to halve the global emissions by 2030, we need our energy systems to shift from a reliance on fossil fuels to using renewable, green energy.

We all have the responsibility to take action and start showing love for our home.

The transformation leader

We are implementing green energy solutions to reduce our company’s carbon footprint but also asking the businesses we work with what they are doing to speed up green action.

The conscious voter

I am emailing, tweeting and calling my politicians to put pressure on them to speed up the build-out of green energy technology and protect our home, planet Earth. #demandgreenenergy
