What is Earth Day?

Today, 22nd April, the world is celebrating Earth Day, but what is it exactly?  

Earth Day is an annual event that began in 1970 designed to celebrate the birth of the modern environmental movement. It helps shine a light on the importance of our planet and raise awareness of the climate crisis and other issues surrounding the destruction of our environment. 

Every Earth Day has a theme, but this year for the first time ever Earth Day is continuing last year’s important theme of “Invest In Our Planet”! 

What Does “Invest In Our Planet” Mean? 
“Invest In Our Planet” is all about the physical and monetary investments needed to make environmental change and help protect our planet and its natural resources.

This theme is focused on engaging governments, organisations and institutions to do their part in conserving the environment, with “everyone accounted for, everyone accountable”. 

Earth Day has decided to continue with this theme for the first time in history, in order to emphasise the importance of investing our time, resources, and energy into solving climate change.

How Can Your Organisation Better “Invest In Our Planet”? 
The best way your organisation can make a difference is with a clear ESG plan. Having a minimal impact on your environment can be achieved by investing in the right type of energy providers, software, technology and reporting systems.  

Creating a quality ESG report is crucial for demonstrating your organisation’s commitment to the environment, and the data found in these reports helps organisations align their ESG plans for a better and more sustainable future.
