In September 2019, Swedish climate campaigner Greta Thunberg sat before members of Congress and urged them to "take real action" on climate change.
"I don't want you to listen to me," said the 16-year-old. "I want you to listen to the scientists. I want you to unite behind the science and I want you to take real action."
Thunberg has become the face of a global youth movement that's seen young people all over the world walking out of their classrooms to attend climate protests. The impact of this campaign has been phenomenal - just take a look at the SchoolStrike4Climate hashtag on Twitter!
What is USAS doing to help?
We at USAS believe that everyone needs to take action in order to overcome the existential threat of climate change.
Our digital certification services are helping to reduce carbon emissions by taking auditors - and their cars - off the road for good.
We have already calculated that we have taken 25 auditors off the road, keeping 185 metric tonnes of CO2e out of Earth's atmosphere in the process!
