A new guide outlines the BMC’s commitment to tackling climate change and offers some useful advice on what you can do to try to reduce your impact.
The BMC is well aware of the impact that climate change could have on the landscapes that make climbing, hill walking and mountaineering so special to us all, and has a significant interest in preserving our mountain environment and wildlife. With temperatures predicted to rise over the next 80 years this could lead to a change in the range, composition and location of important habitats and species in these sensitive environments.
The BMC has already demonstrated its environmental commitment with the development of an Environment Policy and in September 2008, we received the Gold standard of the North West Environmental Business Pledge for our exceptional environmental performance. This further signals our commitment to promoting good practice in managing climate change, both within the office and nationally by offering advice to all our members and the climbing, hill walking and mountaineering community at large. To enhance this further, we have put together a brief guide outlining the changes we have made internally as an organisation, the work we are doing with other external bodies, and offering further advice to our members to reduce their own personal impact.
