Earth Day 2023: How Businesses Can Invest in Our Planet

Earth Day is an annual celebration that aims to raise awareness and advocate for change around the issues most impacting our planet. The first Earth Day was held in 1970, and since then it has grown into a global movement that mobilizes millions of people in more than 190 countries.

The theme for Earth Day 2023 is “Invest in Our Planet”. According to EARTHDAY.ORG, the global organizer of Earth Day, this theme invites businesses of all sizes to act now and adopt sustainable practices that will benefit both the environment and their bottom line. EARTHDAY.ORG argues that there is no longer a choice between going green and growing long-term profits, as climate change will cause even more catastrophic damage to our economies and negatively impact us all.

Some of the ways that businesses can invest in our planet include:

– 🌍 Supporting climate literacy and education for their employees and customers
– 🌳 Planting trees and restoring ecosystems through The Canopy Project
– 👕 Promoting sustainable fashion and reducing textile waste
– 🍼 Joining the fight against plastic pollution and adopting circular economy models
– 🧹 Participating in or organizing local cleanups through The Great Global Cleanup
– 🌻 Advocating for environmental policies and legislation through Vote Earth

By investing in our planet, businesses can also invest in their own future and create a healthy economy that is resilient, inclusive, and prosperous. Earth Day 2023 is an opportunity for businesses to showcase their environmental commitments, celebrate their achievements, and inspire others to join them.

Here are some statistics and quotes that highlight the importance and urgency of investing in our planet:

– Climate change and extreme weather events such as hurricanes, floods and fires have a direct impact on 70% of all economic sectors worldwide. –
– Climate-related events are already affecting more than 1 in 4 organizations worldwide, according to Deloitte Global’s report.
– Global CO2 emissions rose by six percent in 2021—their highest level in history. –
– The people in America most impacted by climate change are Black, Hispanic, and Latinx communities — who are statistically less likely to be responsible for climate harm. – Harvard Business School
– “The first is to move as fast as possible to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from their own operations and from their supply chains. It’s increasingly clear that many firms can cut their emissions by as much as 50 percent relatively quickly and see a strong return on capital as they do so.” – Rebecca Henderson, Harvard Business School professor.
– “We have an enormous opportunity right now to make a difference. We have the solutions. We have the technology. We have the science. We have the public support. We just need to act.” – Kathleen Rogers, President of EARTHDAY.ORG.
