At our company, we’re aware that climate change, if left unchecked, will have major effects on the communities in which we operate, our business, and the economy at large. That’s why we’re joining more than 620 companies and investors across the United States to encourage the incoming administration and new Congress to stick with the commitments we’ve made in the Paris Climate Agreement. Failure to transition toward a low-carbon US economy now will only exacerbate the climate-related problems we’ll experience in the future. But maintaining U.S. climate leadership can spur innovation, advance our nation’s competitiveness, and position U.S. companies as leaders in the global economy.
Our company has committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in our operations and is increasingly sourcing clean energy. We have committed to trying to use as much of our product contents from food scraps, to finding ways to locally source all business supplies within a 200 mile radius of our operations, and ensuring that our distributed manufacturing model leverages local resources as much as possible. Still we plan to do more.
But while we’re working to do all we can to address our carbon footprint, we recognize that government leadership is essential for spurring widespread climate action and the transition to low-carbon energy. That’s why more than 600 U.S. businesses are calling on our elected leaders in Washington to support a low-carbon USA.
We welcome the new administration and Congress and hope that we can work together to build a healthy, thriving, low-carbon economy that will ensure our nation’s economy prosperity for generations to come.
