Extinction Rebellion protest hits McKinsey & Company’s London office

The activist group launched the action to demand the global consulting firm use its influence over companies and governments to help tackle climate change

Extinction Rebellion have today launched a protest outside management consultant McKinsey & Company’s London office to demand the firm uses its influence to tackle climate change.

The activist group claims its advisory position means it has the opportunity to influence companies and governments to take greater action on tackling climate change.

More than 30 protesters gathered on the street outside the building - one said: “It states on the company website that ‘we are carbon neutral’ but it is pumping carbon directly into the atmosphere with its huge number of flights, a number that is actually increasing in real terms.
