The Politics of Climate Change
"We believe the politics of climate change shouldn’t change industry’s commitment to reducing carbon intensity. We are determined to take concrete, measureable and transparent action on these issues in the U.S. and all over the world no matter which way the political winds are blowing." - Our CEO Paul Grimwood writing in Politico in 2015.
