Mars Calls on Global Leaders to Take Bold Action on Climate Change, Accelerates Its Own Renewable Energy Efforts

Mars Calls on Global Leaders to Take Bold Action on Climate Change, Accelerates Its Own Renewable Energy Efforts | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it

Mars, Incorporated is urging the business community and global leaders at COP22 to take bold action to implement the targets agreed last year in Paris for tackling climate change. Mars combined this call to action with an announcement of plans for a wind farm in Mexico—its third major wind energy commitment in as many years.
Mars has an ambition to eliminate all fossil fuel use from its operations by 2040. Today the company is urging business and global leaders to do the same by setting ambitious goals that go beyond the national targets agreed at COP21.

EcoVadis's insight:

Great to see multi-nationals such as Mars calling on Global Leaders to take actions on climate change. How engaged are you towards the issue?

Rail and the Paris Agreement: industry faces major challenges to become mode of choice

Rail and the Paris Agreement: industry faces major challenges to become mode of choice | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it
“Sustainable transport is an important part of our common efforts to tackle climate change and build a cleaner, greener world,” said UN secretary general Mr Ban Ki Moon, in a statement read at the event by UIC director general Mr Jean-Pierre Loubinoux. “The transport sector can play a vital role in achieving the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals. I count on the commitment of the global railway community to make transport more sustainable - and your gathering is especially timely coming within weeks of the entry into force of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.”
EcoVadis's insight:

The railway industry continues to lead the way as a sustainable transport mode, but it must do more to meet its ambitious targets for reducing emissions and energy consumption.
