Those with greater wealth should pay their fair share of taxes to ensure we can prioritize our sustainable future
I support a wealth tax because I believe that such a measure is an important part of a sustainable future for our descendants. The richest 1% emit 15% of all CO2 emissions. Twice as much as the poorest half of our globe. We owe it to the rest of the world to make a positive contribution to the issues we have exacerbated through over consumption. Token gestures such as the banning of single use plastics do not enact real world change, I believe real steps and powerful actions must be taken to save our climate.
Through my company Refurbed I am already pushing society towards sustainable consumption, through the reuse and refurbishment of consumer electronics. I believe more must be done to truly enable a modern and sustainable future. Notable those with greater wealth should pay their fair share of taxes to ensure we can prioritize our sustainable future.
