At SharePower, 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.
SharePower has committed to confronting the reality of climate change. We are a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact, which specifically addresses climate change and the whole range of environmental issues facing the world.
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.
