Global Change Requires Local Action
Every time you buy something made of recycled materials or turn off that extra light, you're helping to lower your own environmental footprint. Most of us do small things like that to help. The people highlighted here are doing much more. We're proud to support them and follow their lead by reducing our own carbon footprint. With the completion of our 10-year, $20-billion environmental business initiative ahead of schedule, we stepped up and announced a new 10-year, $50-billion goal starting in 2013. We hope to be a catalyst for addressing climate change, sparking the innovation economy and advancing a transition to a low-carbon future.
