Cargill joins other major American companies in signing White House’s American Business Act on Climate Pledge

The climate change impact on agriculture may prove significant, and everybody can play a role in tackling this global challenge. That’s why Cargill, the US’s largest privately held corporation, has joined other leading American companies like great Minnesota businesses such as Target, Best Buy and General Mills in signing the American Business Act on Climate Pledge by the White House.

Under the pledge, Cargill has made a number of specific commitments to enhance energy efficiency and boost the use of renewable energy. It has also given reaffirmation to the work it has been doing throughout its global supply chains to save forests and cut greenhouse-gas emissions. The latest benchmarks will join the work Cargill has done earlier to lower its carbon footprint, making its agricultural supply chains more sustainable.

However, there is another significant element of the pledge under which Cargill and its fellow signatories are going to offer their support for a powerful result at ongoing global climate negotiations in Paris, wherein around 150 heads of state have assembled making it among the biggest international gatherings on any matter.

After all America can’t give a solution to climate change solely, however American leadership can be helpful in bringing about a global consensus. The way the pledge has represented a partnership between government and industry, the Paris talks is the representative of a significant inflection point in the effort to make collaboration throughout nations, establishing an international promise of taking serious action now.
