Acer America today announced that it has joined the American Business Act on Climate Pledge, joining more than 140 companies from across the American economy that are standing with the Obama Administration to demonstrate an ongoing commitment to climate action and to voice support for a strong outcome to the COP21 Paris climate negotiations.
THE AMERICAN BUSINESS ACT ON CLIMATE PLEDGE:
Acer applauds the growing number of countries that have already set ambitious targets for climate action. In this context, Acer supports the conclusion of a climate change agreement in Paris that takes a strong step forward toward a low-carbon, sustainable future.
