The Climate Pledge was founded by Amazon and Global Optimism and brings together a cross-sector community of companies and organisations to tackle the climate crisis and become net zero carbon across their businesses, by the year 2040.
By becoming a signatory of the Climate Pledge, Aico, the European market leader in home life safety, commit to three principal areas of action: regular reporting, carbon elimination and credible offsets. Aico will regularly measure and report their greenhouse gas emissions, implement decarbonization strategies throughout their business practices and neutralise remaining emissions to achieve net zero ahead of the Paris Agreement.
This announcement aligns with further efforts and commitments made by Aico in the drive towards climate action; their dedicated Corporate Social Responsibility programme has a core focus on environmental impact. Through this, Aico works alongside local and national organisations to promote awareness of the urgent need for climate action, solve the challenges of decarbonisation and share practical solutions in order to deliver a more sustainable future.
Lee Duffy, Operations Learning and Development Manager at Aico, comments “We are in the middle of a climate crisis, if we do not take action now, we may do catastrophic damage to our planet. Sustainability is within our core values, and we are passionate about making long term change. By collaborating with other organisations through becoming a signatory of the Climate Pledge, we can begin to learn how to make a difference and support others on their journey. Firstly to awareness, then to action, and finally to solutions.”
