At Emerger Strategies, we’re aware that climate change, if left unchecked, will have major effects on the communities in which we operate, our business, and the economy at large. We are also aware that climate change is already having negative impacts on our fisheries. That’s why we’re joining more than 620 companies and investors across the United States to encourage the incoming administration and new Congress to stick with the commitments we’ve made in the Paris Climate Agreement. Failure to transition toward a low-carbon US economy now will only exacerbate the climate-related problems we’ll experience in the future. But maintaining U.S. climate leadership can spur innovation, advance our nation’s competitiveness, and position U.S. companies as leaders in the global economy.
Emerger Strategies is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in our operations and is increasingly sourcing clean energy. We have done:
- LED lighting retrofit of our office to reduce our demand for electricity
- purchase renewable energy certificates from Arcadia Power for 50% of our energy use
- plan on installing solar panels in 2018.
But while we’re working to do all we can to address our carbon footprint, we recognize that government leadership is essential for spurring widespread climate action and the transition to low-carbon energy. That’s why more than 600 U.S. businesses are calling on our elected leaders in Washington to support a low-carbon USA.
We welcome the new administration and Congress and hope that we can work together to build a healthy, thriving, low-carbon economy that will ensure our nation’s economy prosperity for generations to come.
