Discussing "climate-friendliness" of careers
The spirit of the Climate Career Pledge is to encourage individuals to shape their career into one that is as "climate-friendly" as possible. Just as some people decide to commute by bike, install solar panels on their homes, or eat a vegan diet, the advocating for sustainable practices within one's career has the potential to empower people.
...So, what is a "climate-friendly" career? Obviously, some careers are intrinsically tied to carbon emissions, whereas others are several steps away. And different people within an institution may or may not have the ability to directly influence company policy.
