NRDC: Business of Combating Climate Change is the Business of America

WASHINGTON—(ENEWSPF)–July 27, 2015 – Thirteen of America’s largest companies today pledged to significantly slash their carbon pollution, increase their reliance on renewable sources of energy and invest more than $140 billion in a drive to lessen their carbon footprint.

The following is a statement by Rhea Suh, president of the Natural Resources Defense Council.

“The business of combating climate change is the business of America. That’s the message the world is hearing today. The formation of ‘The American Business Act on Climate Pledge’ is another giant step toward a global, all-in effort to slow, stop and reverse climate change. This leadership should spur other business commitments demonstrating to the world that even as climate change threatens us all, we can solve it together. On to Paris.”
