Climate Positive Awards 2023 for addressing Human Impact Positively.

December 1 is the second day of the COP 28 UNFCCC Conference of the Parties in Dubai, United Arab Emirates; the world witnessed the unveiling of the esteemed Climate Positive Awards 2023. This distinguished accolade was announced today by Green Cross United Kingdom, as a testament to the remarkable efforts made in addressing human impact on our planet.

As Nobel Prize winner Mikhail Gorbachev, the political leader who put an end to the Cold War, was the visionary behind Green Cross’s founding and its enduring mission said, “We are responsible for our planet, for the legacy that we are going to leave to future generations”, adding that the conflict between people and the environment has reached “unprecedented levels”. “Conversations, only meetings at all levels, and above all at the highest, can lead to positive results. I believe in that. Experience gives clear evidence of this”.

In a very interesting and hard-fought selection process, Green Cross United Kingdom announced on October 23, a list of governments, organizations, universities, writers, companies, media, and persons that now are recognized globally as winners of the Climate Positive Awards for executing actions with measurable and positive results against Climate Change, Global Change, and Human Impact. Their actions are a testament to their dedication and contribution to the greater global good.

Recognizing the magnitude of Global Change, the Climate Positive movement develops a model of ascending consensual action as a community initiative for the environment, with the goal of facilitating and increasing the execution of projects that address positively Human Impact.

The Executive Director of Green Cross United Kingdom, Ruy Campos Dugone, stated, “Following the tradition of Green Cross to reward organisations that are actions oriented that transcend the path to sustainability, highlighting the efforts to avoid, prepare for, and/or address issues related to Global Change, as well as their coordinated efforts to benefit communities and the environment, we synthesize the reason why the entities are winners of our Climate Positive Awards 2023”.

Green Cross United Kingdom promotes and develops the path to sustainability, with the Climate Positive Awards being an important milestone that invites everyone to be inspired and continue the work.
