Direct action that disrupts people’s lives is always regrettable. If you live or work in a city targeted by the campaign group Extinction Rebellion, then you might well have been inconvenienced by their protests.

But the global economy is currently on a trajectory towards more than three degrees of warming. Without radical action to reign in the extent of this climatic change, the costs that will be imposed on our lives will be incomparably greater. It is for this reason that WHEB, alongside other leading businesses, signed a letter in support of the Extinction Rebellion Agenda and has committed itself to working to accelerate the business response to climate change.
