"We want the US economy to be energy efficient and powered by low-carbon energy. Cost-effective and innovative solutions can help us achieve these objectives. Failure to build a low-carbon economy puts American prosperity at risk. But the right action now will create jobs and boost US competitiveness. We pledge to do our part, in our own operations and beyond, to realize the Paris Agreement′s commitment of a global economy that limits global temperature rise to well below 2 degrees Celsius."
[COMMENTARY] Clearly, a good number of American companies support a low-carbon economy. Despite President Trump’s present anti-climate rhetoric, a broad-based business case for low-carbon initiatives might eventually reduce the President’s antipathy towards it.
