Signatories of the Pledge commit to reaching net zero carbon emissions by 2040, ten years ahead of the goal set out in the United Nations’ Paris Climate Agreement.
“We believe that climate change is among the most urgent issues the world is facing today, which makes our joining The Climate Pledge a defining moment for Rubicon. It is our declaration of alliance in the fight against climate change and a restatement of our company’s mission,” said David Rachelson, Chief Sustainability Officer at Rubicon.
Through further business model innovations, the increased adoption of technology and data tools, and by identifying and scaling solutions that accelerate the transition to a circular economy, Rubicon and its partners will further reduce the adverse effects of carbon emissions on the planet’s biodiversity, natural ecosystems, and its climate.
“By signing The Climate Pledge, companies around the world are working together to protect our planet from the catastrophic impacts of climate change,” said Kara Hurst, Amazon’s Vice President of Worldwide Sustainability.
“We are thrilled to welcome Rubicon to The Climate Pledge community, as they join in our commitment to be net-zero carbon by 2040, a decade ahead of the Paris Agreement.”
“We are proud to stand alongside the other companies who have signed The Climate Pledge in this most pressing of global missions.”
