Statement: President Calderón Welcomes American Business Act on Climate Pledge

President Calderón, Chair of the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate: “We welcome the pledges by 13 major US companies to substantially decrease their carbon footprints and invest in renewable energy. Climate commitments by businesses are gaining momentum as we recognize that the low-carbon economy is better for growth than the high-carbon alternative. By reducing emissions, companies can unlock significant savings in energy, resource, and fuel costs, and also boost productivity and innovation. More businesses should step up, or else they’ll miss out on their chance to reap the rewards of the low-carbon economy.”
