At Greenfish, we believe in a fully sustainable and profitable future. Therefore, we naturally have pledged our support to the Sign for my Future campaign which started on the 05th of February.
Sign for my future is a Belgian initiative calling all Belgians (citizens, companies, media, academics, etc.) to sign for a more ambitious climate policy. Citizens who sign on www.signformyfuture.be urge our future governments to take concrete actions to develop such a policy with a climate law, an investment plan, and a climate council, as part of the Paris Agreement and the necessity to prevent global temperatures from rising above 2 °C.
In concrete terms, Sign for my Future highlights three requirements:
- A climate law:
A legal framework with intermediate objectives so that Belgium becomes climate neutral by 2050 and the next legislature takes all the necessary measures to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This legal framework should enter into force by the end of 2020 at the latest.
- An investment plan:
A robust investment plan to help and encourage citizens and businesses to participate in the transition to a climate neutral society. This investment plan must come into effect by the end of 2022 at the latest.
- A climate council:
An independent evaluation of the policy of a neutral climate council composed of experts.
The latest actions in recent months by all members of society (such as the “Claim the climate” marches) show that climate must rise high on the global policy agenda. If you want to know more about the initiative and sign for our future visit the website www.signformyfuture.be and ask our next government to take concrete measures for the climate!
And of course… Do not hesitate to spread the word by sharing your interest with your friends, family and colleagues!
