Companies Challenged to Adopt Science-Based Climate Goals
Over 100 publicly traded companies have reported to CDP that they will adopt science-based emissions reduction plans, and letters from members of the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility intend to hold them to their promises.
It's still too early to know with certainty what will happen to support from the US for the Paris
climate accord, but the outlook is not good. President-elect Trump's choice to run the
Environmental Protection Agency is Scott Pruitt, who has repeatedly sued to agency itself over
environmental regulations; he also disputes the scientific validity of climate change. And the
Department of Energy has stated it will reject Trump's request for “a list of employees who
worked on various climate change priorities in President Obama’s administration, including the
Paris climate agreement and the social cost of carbon.”
