Profiel

Since 1997 GoodPlanet Belgium, formerly known as GREEN vzw (a non-profit organisation), has taught youngsters and adults how to lead a sustainable life. 50 employees and dozens of volunteers from all corners of Belgium share their know-how and passion for sustainable development every day. In 2013, the name GREEN vzw was changed to GoodPlanet Belgium. This makes this organisation the Belgian partner in the international GoodPlanet network, established by well-known French film maker and photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand. An obvious step for an organisation with a history of international projects and partnerships. This collaboration also resulted in a new synergy: a strong message to get more people to lead sustainable lives, illustrated by the impressive pictures and film material of Yann Arthus-Bertrand.

Ambities

The Shift helpt leden gebruik maken van het globaal kader van de UN Sustainable Development Goals om hun maatschappelijke ambities in kaart te brengen.

13. Climate action

By signing the COP21 engagement letter, we commit to take voluntary action to reduce environmental and carbon footprints. We implement this by setting targets to reduce our current own GHG emissions and/or energy consumption, while also collaborating in supply chains and at sectorial levels. We agree on the need for inspirational and meaningful global action and aligned messaging. We will act as ambassadors for climate action, focusing on solutions and economic opportunities. We will help raise public awareness. We will actively manage climate risks and incorporate them in decision making — not least to realize growth opportunities. We will take steps to implement effective strategies to strengthen not only our companies’ but also societal resilience.
