More than 300 companies have called on President Joe Biden to double U.S. targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to pre-2005 levels by 2030.
More than 300 businesses and investors have called on President Joe Biden to nearly double U.S. targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to pre-2005 levels by 2030.
In a letter published on Tuesday, corporate leaders from companies like Google, Apple, Walmart, Unilever and General Electric praised the Biden administration for rejoining the global Paris climate accord and taking an aggressive stance against climate change.
The push by CEOs of some of the country’s largest companies to set a goal to slash emissions of carbon dioxide, methane and other gases by at least 50% before 2030 comes ahead of a global leaders’ climate summit to be hosted by the U.S. government on April 22.
The Biden administration plans to unveil a stricter emissions target for the Paris accord on or before that date.
