OUR POSITION ON CLIMATE CHANGE
The ARA believes that human activity is responsible for climate change and that the global community needs to take urgent and decisive action now to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.
The retail sector is uniquely placed to make a meaningful contribution to Australia’s transition to the low-carbon economy of the future, while also supporting the shift towards more sustainable consumption and working with suppliers to improve environmental and social impacts along the supply chain.
CLIMATE ACTION PLAN
No business and no sector will make the transition to the low-carbon economy of the future in isolation, which is why the ARA has developed its Climate Action Plan – outlining the steps we’ll take to support the retail sector in taking co-ordinated action. Click here for more.
NET ZERO MASTERCLASS SERIES
The ARA is committed to helping Australian retailers achieve their own ambitious targets, but we know that finding the time to understand and tackle climate change is challenging. That’s why we have developed our Net-Zero Masterclass Series, to move our sector beyond words and into action. View all six webinars here.
