Businesses playing their part: The call for a Healthy and Sustainable Environment
Singular.Live is proud to be an advocate of The B Team’s call for universal recognition of the Human Right to a Healthy and Sustainable Environment. This initiative comes in the form of an open letter to the Human Rights Council, as they begin considering a resolution on this bill; which has now been unanimously encouraged by over 50 businesses worldwide in the signing of The B Team’s letter.
‘We, the undersigned, are a group of business leaders who seek to catalyse a movement of business for a better world, one in which both people and nature can thrive. We call on Member States at the UN Human Rights Council and the UN General Assembly to unite in support of universal recognition of the human right to a safe, clean, healthy and sustainable environment because we recognise it as fundamental to the functioning of our businesses, our societies and our economies.’
Singular is committed to the minimization of unsustainable practices, requiring conscientious objection to business endeavors that cause environmental damage and destruction. We would encourage all other organizations to do the same, and also to recognize that just by taking some very small steps, you are contributing to a healthier and more sustainable environment.
