Hundreds Of Companies Call For U.S. To Slash Carbon Emissions More than 300 businesses have signed an open letter calling on the Biden administration to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the United States to at least half of 2005 levels by 2030. That would nearly double a previous target set by former President Barack Obama in 2015, who pledged a 25 to 28% reduction by 2025. The United States is not currently on track to meet either goal. The signatories include some of largest companies in the United States, including Walmart, Apple, McDonald's and Starbucks. "A bold 2030 target is needed to catalyze a zero-emissions future, spur a robust economic recovery, create millions of well-paying jobs, and allow the U.S. to 'build back better' from the pandemic," the letter said, echoing the president's economic recovery slogan. https://www.npr.org/2021/04/13/9867...panies-call-for-u-s-to-slash-carbon-emissions It looks like the corporate world is finally waking up.
