TODAY’S Sustainability Matters is brought to you by Hurtigruten – It’s time to talk: One week into 2020 and Australia is struggling. Lives have been lost. Homes and businesses have been destroyed, habitat decimated and wildlife killed on a scale we have never seen before.
We have never faced a more challenging time as we grapple with the impact of global warming on our environment.
Australia’s focus remains steadfast on communities directly impacted by the fires. I’m proud to be in an industry where individuals and organisations have responded with great generosity.
But it is also an extremely important time to be talking about the underlying causes of climate change and the leadership required to address these challenges.
If we can’t recognise the impact of climate change and the work needed to address these challenges now, while it is so raw, we never will. Taking action is the right thing to do and respects and honours all those that have lost so much already.
Let’s commit to a positive conversation on the role we play in our industry to lead, innovate and change to build a sustainable future for all.
