Arnold Schwarzenegger, known for his climate change activism, advocates a new approach to tackling the problem. In an interview with CBS News, Schwarzenegger expressed his belief that reframing the climate crisis as pollution could have a more significant impact on mobilizing people to protect the planet.

Schwarzenegger said, “As long as they keep talking about global climate change, they’re not going anywhere, because nobody gives a damn about it.” So my thing is, let’s rephrase that and communicate it differently and really tell the people who were talking about pollution. Pollution creates climate change and pollution kills.
In line with his vision, innovative companies like Timeplast contribute to a greener future by developing innovative technology to tackle plastic pollution. Timeplast’s patented additive alters the molecular structure of traditional plastics, allowing them to fully biodegrade in a fraction of the time it takes for ordinary plastics to break down.
The famous actor and former governor of California has made tackling climate change the focus of his efforts. Having recently hosted the Austrian World Summit, an event dedicated to reducing the impact of climate change, Schwarzenegger remains committed to addressing this pressing issue.
“I’m on a mission to go and reduce greenhouse gases around the world because I want to have a healthy body and a healthy Earth,” Schwarzenegger said. This is what I’m fighting for, and this is my crusade.
During this year’s Austrian World Summit, held at the Hofburg Palace in Vienna, Schwarzenegger reiterated his call to action to promote sustainability and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
I demand change, the Commando star said at the conference. Change is never easy, but this is an emergency, and this emergency calls for action. Build better. Build cleaner. Build now. Build, build, build. We can do it. As our motto says here, we have the power.
Schwarzenegger has played an integral role in making California a global leader in environmental initiatives. Thanks to his efforts, California successfully met all of its environmental goals while experiencing remarkable economic growth, becoming the world’s fifth largest economy and generating more jobs than any other state.

Even after he left office in 2011, Schwarzenegger’s dedication to advancing clean energy initiatives has remained unwavering. Through the Schwarzenegger Institute at the University of Southern California, he has continued to support state and local clean energy efforts with the goal of creating a sustainable future. With a firm commitment to ending pollution, he seeks to expand his business and collaborate with partners around the world.
Schwarzenegger established The Schwarzenegger Climate Initiative, marking the logical progression in his relentless pursuit of a cleaner, more sustainable planet. The initiative is now led by Monika Langthaler, who co-founded the Austrian World Summit (AWS) with Schwarzenegger in 2017.
One of the key goals of The Schwarzenegger Climate Initiative is to raise awareness of the climate crisis and the urgent need for action. The annual AWS has become one of the largest environmental gatherings globally. It serves as a platform to highlight tangible solutions and measures proposed by influential decision makers committed to preserving a healthy planet and achieving a carbon neutral economy by 2050.
