We have created a Climate Action Plan specifically for membership organisations to shape and fit with their own unique business model, member proposition and purpose.


Regulatory, commercial and environmental imperatives have put carbon reduction at the top of the agenda for every type of organisation.

Membership organisations are no exception. In fact, as leaders of business and industry are often standard setters themselves, associations worldwide have an even greater role to play and an enormous opportunity to drive change.

​To help you, we have developed a CAFA Climate Action Plan specifically for membership organisations to use internally, and to help them start to cascade climate direction and leadership to their members.


The Climate Action Plan provides membership organisations with the initial key steps to take and the considerations you need to make to accelerate towards net zero.

The Climate Action Plan will:

  • Support you plan your organisation's journey to net zero.

  • Provide you with an operational and practical framework for you to tailor to suit your own organisational needs. Including;

  1. Stakeholder Engagement & Strategic Alignment.

  2. Understanding Your Baseline.

  3. Setting Targets

  4. Taking Practical Action

  5. Measurement.

  6. Reporting.

  7. Demonstrating Leadership, Engaging & Supporting Your Membership

Eliminating carbon from your operations will present a variety of challenges, and the measures required will vary for different types of organisation.


We want to assure you that there is no one-size-fits-all solution - the Climate Action Plan has been created so you can shape it to your needs.

Most membership organisation's operations are office-based in nature (some with multiple sites) and fit within the definition of an SME in terms of employee numbers and turnover - we have curated the Climate Action Plan with this in mind.

Aspects of the Climate Action Plan can be replicated and tailored to engage and support your membership on their own race to net zero.

Leaders at Davos 2021 stated that if we don't have climate action plans and targets in place before COP26, it will be too late.
The time to act is now.

We want to know where you are in your climate action journey and what you need from CAFA to enable you to do more today.
