70 Companies in Oregon Support State Action on Climate Change!

CaptureThis just in from fellow Portland, Oregon non-profit Oregon Environmental Council: On Tuesday, over 70 companies in Oregon announced their support for state action on climate change, including support for clean fuels and reducing carbon pollution. Companies including Adidas, eBay, Moda Health, Nike, Portland Trailblazers, Staples, Umpqua Bank and others join the effort to show that there is business support for moving forward on climate change and to lead on climate in our region. You can view the Oregon Business Climate Declaration and the story in this week’s Portland Business Journal.

For those of you local to Oregon, the Oregonian is running a poll asking if companies should step up and take positions on climate change. Has your company signed on? If not, you can do that by clicking here.
