Climate Action

Back to Overview

Climate Action is a general but widely used term. It describes every action, every step and every contribution that a private person, a company or other organisations implement and contribute to active climate protection. This can include personal measures such as energy efficiency improvements, more conscious consumption, changes in mobility or participation in public debates, demonstrations and awareness-raising measures such as social media contributions.

Climate action is also one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.
