How Millennials feel about
climate change
And what we want to do about it.
In October and November 2015,
we engaged with a community
of 270 Millennials to
understand their views
on climate
change.
18-30 year olds
10+ countries
42% younger Millennials (18-25 year olds)
60% female
at www.bethechance.com
The circles indicate the number of responses from these countries.

Millennials have
raised their
expectations. They
want businesses
to transform their
processes and
deliver real
change.
- Elena, 19, UK
[I’m] shocked that the things most of
us don't even think about can have
such a huge impact half way
round the world!
UK
- Lauren, 24, United States
Businesses should be held
responsible for the products they
are making and what happens
after the products are used (and
how they are disposed).
US
- Sara, 24, Denmark
It’s so easy to do something,
so why on earth do politicians
and companies have to make it
so hard?
Denmark
Millennials are
confronted by the
scale of problem,
and the complexity
of engaging all
actors.
The result is a
deep sense of
pessimism.
POWERLESS
Helpless
Resigned
ParalyzedDefeated
Desolate
SenseofUrgency
Desperation
Panic
Hopeless
Despaired
Millennials also
insist on
collaboration
between these key
actors – especially
Business and
Government.
It’s no wonder that Millennials say Government, Society
and Business are together most responsible for change.
Millennials
are slowly
beginning to
realize their
habits are
part of the
problem too.

Winnie, 22, Taiwan
I feel sad. I am an environmentalist,
I want to slow down climate change
personally. Taiwan
A.Y., 30, Malaysia
We need to save Earth for the
next generations. We cannot live
happily when seeing our own
house are being burnt.
Anxiety rises and people are sick
both emotionally and in bodies.
I do not want to feel sick
anymore. Malaysia
Shina, 25, China
Everybody is responsible for climate
change. We can do every little thing to
change the situation and we have to!
Companies can push people and I
think we need leverage this to effect
more people to take action.
China

Here’s how Millennials want businesses to address climate
change.
Some Millennials
feel hopeful about
climate change –
they see it as an
opportunity
for global
collaboration.
Hope
Actlike one planet
OpportunityChange
Excited
Positive
Climate change is the greatest threat to
civilized human culture and progress.
On the other hand, it is the greatest
potential for innovation, collaboration and
the establishment of a real
global community.
Asger, 30, Denmark
Denmark
If you were President or Prime
Minister of your country…
We asked Millennials what they would do if
we offered them some power.
If you had $100 million to
address climate change…
Power
Money Authority
If Millennials had $100 million to address
climate change, they would invest in…
RENEWABLE
ENERGY
Solar & wind energy
Solar infrastructure
INNOVATION
Research
R&D
Desalination
FOOD SECURITY
Sustainable farming
Food supply
Micro-farming
REPAIR
Re-forestation
EDUCATION
Awareness
If Millennials were Head of State of their country,
they would introduce…
eco-mindset eco-system eco-nomy

Recommendations
for Business
1. The fight against climate change
should be everyone’s fight
• Make it relevant to everyone’s
daily lives.
If they know they can make a difference,
they will.
• Inspire people to innovate new
ideas and technologies.
Individual actions – around aspects like clean
energy, sustainable agriculture, R&D – will lead to
a significant collective response.
2. The tipping point for Sustainable Business
is now
• It’s time for transformation.
With increasing pressure from Millennials, and in
fact all stakeholders, businesses must find new
ways to operate.
• A new era of performance with
purpose.
There is a ‘Race to the Top’ – this will be amplified
by early actors and the UN climate change
conference.
www.bit.ly/ChanceforChange
3. Businesses,
Millennials are your best chance for change.
• We are acting anyway.
With businesses, or on our own.
• We are stronger together.
Millennials bring the passion, the vision, the
creativity. Businesses bring stability, scale and
structure. Both are crucial for success.
Thank you!
