Business Steps Up to Address Climate Change as US Government Retreats
If you’re wondering about business leadership re. climate change in a time of retrograde Trump administration environmental policies, consider these numbers. Over 900 companies and investors have signed a commitment in support of the Paris Climate Accord. Over 100 companies have signed up to RE100 to commit to 100% renewable energy. And almost 300 companies have committed so science-based climate action. These collective figures come courtesy of Companies vs. Climate Change, an event series whose mission is “to bring together companies from around the world to discuss climate change and how they can work together to address it most impactfully."
