The government of the United States is formally on the way to make it way out of the Paris Agreement, an international pact that targets to fight climate change, but steps aside from government’s decision major US companies have jointly with a group of around 80 chief executives and U.S. labor organization leaders signed the renewed commitment to Paris Agreement.
The statement has been posted on UnitedForTheParisAgreement.com that represents a joint group of more than 2 million people in the U.S. The statement published also says that they “urge the United States” to reconsider its current course and also agree to remain committed to the agreement.
“Humanity has never faced a greater or more urgent threat than climate change — and it’s one we must face together. Apple will continue our work to leave the planet better than we found it and to make the tools that encourage others to do the same.” Apple CEO Tim Cook shared on Twitter.
Prominent tech company executives Microsoft’s Satya Nadella, Tesla’s Elon Musk, Google’s Sundar Pichai and Adobe’s Shantanu Narayen also signed in the new agreement. Chief executives from other powerful U.S. companies across industries, including Coca-Cola’s James Quincey, Patagonia’s Rose Marcario, Unilever’s Alan Jope, and Walt Disney’s Robert Iger also signed the agreement.
