We Join the 'We Mean Business' Coalition

We're proud to be a part of the We Mean Business Coalition, which has gathered over 500 of the world's most influential companies to come together to create bold initiatives to reduce carbon emissions and strengthen adaptation efforts.

The clean energy movement and the low carbon economy is growing, and many companies at least internally are setting a price on carbon with the expectation that this will be a public reality soon.However, this is just the beginning. Recognizing that bold action is needed in order to keep the planet's temperature from rising more than 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels, and also recognizing the increasing risk for people, business and the wider global economy, "We Mean Business" is calling for national and international policy that strengthens clean energy and energy efficiency, while also providing the right environment for innovation and investment in clean technologies.

The movement hopes to invite more businesses to join, recognizing that "meeting the climate challenge is our greatest economic opportunity."
