Speaking up on climate change and the launch of Protect’s new Environmental Whistleblowing Toolkit.
Public awareness of the severity of climate change is growing. The past decade has seen a surge in climate activism and climate anxiety in the UK is at an all -time high; three in four adults in Great Britain report feeling worried about climate change, and yet, Protect’s free and confidential whistleblowing legal Advice Line receives surprisingly few calls from whistleblowers reporting environmental concerns. How can speaking up help address the impact businesses have on the climate? What role do whistleblowers play in the fight against environmental damage?
This discussion chaired by Schona Jolly KC at Cloisters Chambers, sees Desiree Fixler, DWS whistleblower and ESG specialist discuss environmental whistleblowing with Caitlín Comins, Protect Legal Officer; Gabriel Bourdon-Fattal, Co-Founder Climate Whistleblowers and Natalie Prosser, CEO Office for Environmental Protection.
