The ASB declares a Climate Emergency

The ASB declares a Climate Emergency

At our December 2019 Annual General Meeting, Society members unanimously voted for the ASB to Declare a Climate Emergency.

Current ASB President, Dr Adam Hill, has now signed the Climate Emergency Charter on behalf of the Society which commits the ASB to reducing carbon emissions produced from its activities. Going forward, the ASB will put in place policies to ensure that all ASB related transport, catering and events will incorporate carbon emission minimisation procedures.

The ASB will also seek to invest in renewable energy, as well as develop social media platforms to engage with the public about the current climate crisis.
