The American Business Act on Climate Pledge
Walsh says: “We applaud the growing number of countries that have already set ambitious targets for climate action. In this context, we support the conclusion of a climate change agreement in Paris that takes a strong step forward toward a low-carbon, sustainable future. We recognize that delaying action on climate change will be costly in economic and human terms, while accelerating the transition to a low-carbon economy will produce multiple benefits with regards to sustainable economic growth, public health, resilience to natural disasters, and the health of a global environment.
“RM2 is honored to join the American Business Act on Climate Pledge and support other leaders from the private sector dedicated to reducing emissions in their daily operations and overall supply chain,” he continues.
“Our team of engineers created the BLOCKPal pallet to be a sustainable and competitive pallet solution for every supply chain. Our pallets drive down costs, reduce deforestation and shrink our customer’s carbon footprint.”
