The ASB declares a Climate Emergency
>>> Posted by Admin - 15/07/2020
At our December 2019 Annual General Meeting, ASB members unanimously voted for the society 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. As a result, the ASB will adopt new procedures that will be effective in reducing the Society’s carbon footprint. Such Procedures include those that deal with catering, travel, media and investment of ASB funds. The ASB Vice-President will undertake to monitor the effectiveness, where possible, of those procedures. More details on how this will be implemented are outlined in our Climate Emergency Plan document.
