Teaching our associates about the benefits of climate-smart technology and addressing climate change minimizes risk in our supply chain and protects jobs.
Improving the direct environment for communities and supporting those that are disproportionately affected by climate change and its resulting extreme weather events and human health implications.2
Measuring and reducing our emissions is key to mitigating some of climate change’s scary symptoms, from prolonged droughts to melting glaciers.
