We support the Paris Agreement & Australia’s commitment to it, including the objective to keep global warming to well below 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels.

Purpose and Vision

The Australian Climate Leaders Coalition (CLC) is a group of cross-sectoral Australian corporate CEOs supporting the Paris Agreement commitments and setting public decarbonisation targets. Its purpose is to provide a common voice on why big business is seeing decarbonisation as a way to ensure long term economic sustainability – and how they can have an impact and realise competitive advantage through early action in an apolitical and non-confrontational manner. The CLC is action orientated and provides an open, confidential and authentic forum for CEOs to share the challenges of their decarbonisation journeys. It is inclusive and provides information and case studies for those CEOs not yet taking action and wanting to understand their options.

About us and Members

An initiative of the B-Team Australasia, the Australian CLC is a group of CEOs of leading Australian organisations including publicly listed, private and NGOs. The CLC has 22 Founding Members of which Chief Executives have so far signed the original joint statement, which commits their organisations to take voluntary action on climate change.

Member Commitment

By joining the CLC, members have made the following commitment:

For the viability of our businesses, for the generations after us and for the country we love, we are ambitious for action on climate change. If we act now, we can forge a path to create a future that is low-emissions, positive for our businesses and economy, and inclusive for all Australians. We are committed to playing our part to make that future real. If we don’t, our competitiveness is at risk.

We take climate change seriously in our business:

  • We support the Paris Agreement and Australia’s commitment to it, including the objective to keep global warming to well below 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels;
  • We measure the greenhouse gas emissions associated with our environmental footprint and, if not already done, within 12 months of joining will set public emissions targets;
  • We work with our suppliers and customers to encourage them to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions; and
  • We believe that a responsible and equitable transition to a low emissions economy is an opportunity to improve Australia’s prosperity.
