Ball commits to climate change action
As part of is commitment to be part of the global climate solution, the company has signed onto ‘America Is All In’, a coalition mobilising for climate action including working to reduce emissions 50% by 2030.
The U.S.’s re-entry into the Paris Climate agreement marks a big step in the right direction in the fight against climate change, according to Ball Corporation. The US Government administration under President Joe Biden has reversed the decision of Donald Trump to quit the agreement, just 107 days after it withdrew.
“As the world’s largest producer of aluminium beverage packaging, we are committed doing our part to accelerate climate action, working with our partners and customers to reduce waste, improve and increase recycling and limit our footprint through more sustainable choices,” said a statement by Ball.
“Aluminium and recycling have important roles to play in building a brighter future for our planet, but we also know that it will require all of us to make meaningful change.
“We are proud to be one of over 1,700 leaders that are joining #AmericaIsAllIn.”
Led by Mike Bloomberg, the UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Climate Ambition and Solutions, Washington Governor Jay Inslee, Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles, CommonSpirit Health CEO Lloyd Dean and climate champions across the country, the coalition is working to cut U.S. emissions in half by 2030 and reach net zero emissions by 2050, while guarding against the impacts of climate disruption.
Coupled with whole-of-government action on climate, America Is All In champions a whole-of-society mobilisation to deliver the transformational change that science demands, with the goal of a healthy, prosperous, equitable, and sustainable future.
