The journey to decarbonisation is one that can leave no passenger behind. It requires the involvement and commitment of everyone in society – and young people are crucial to its success.
They are the ones with the most to gain or lose if the communal effort to create a sustainable future succeeds or fails, and they will be the ones who will live longest with the consequences of our actions today.
Seizing their attention over the issues surrounding the environment and involving them in the process of decarbonising our economy are therefore critical elements in the fight against global warming.
Different countries and different businesses have adopted a variety of approaches to engage with young people on the decarbonisation journey, and energy companies have a particular responsibility to lead the way.
