COLLEGE PARK, Md., May 28, 2019 /3BL Media/ – Today, Michael R. Bloomberg, the United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Climate Action, is doubling down on his commitment to support ongoing efforts at the state and local levels to combat the climate crisis as the current U.S. administration fails to act. Bloomberg will grant $2.3 million to the University of Maryland’s Center for Global Sustainability and the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) to evaluate and analyze current U.S. greenhouse gas emissions reductions.
More than 2,000 Bloomberg employees dedicated 17,370 hours of hands-on action supporting local greening efforts in 33 cities around the world in 2018. Bloomberg employees were dedicated to preserving and restoring our local green spaces throughout the year. In Sydney, nearly 80 employees contributed almost 200 volunteer hours to the Royal Botanic Garden’s Community Greening Project, which improves social cohesion and public health and reduces crime through communal gardening projects.
