These Corporations Won’t Sugar-Coat Climate Change
Mars Inc., Staples, the Gap, Levi Strauss, Seventh Generation, and even ExxonMobil have come out against Trump’s reversal of the clean power plan and other climate regulations. As reported by the Guardian, Edward Hoover, head of Corporate Communications for Mars, commented that “Corporations can’t do it alone. Governments play a critical role in mitigating the effects of climate change on our economy.” Many major U.S. corporations signed a letter confirming the economic benefits of climate regulation: better regulation spurs innovation, creates new jobs, and is much better for the economy. Despite the influx of corporate support, this economic reality is rejected by the current U.S. administration.
