Rich Lesser, BCG CEO, on behalf of BCG’s Executive Committee
We are disappointed at the United States government’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement and its potential impact on global efforts to address climate change. Climate change is real and the substantial negative impact that it will have on our world is supported by clear and robust science. In addition, renewable and other advanced energy technologies will become a very significant industry. Withdrawal from the agreement may reduce the opportunity for the US to be a global leader in these technologies.
This setback will not deter BCG from contributing our ideas and support to helping the world address climate change. We will do this through our on-going research, by working with leading companies and with governments around the world, through our own sustainability efforts, and with our support to leading NGOs.
We must all step forward to take on this urgent challenge.
