MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (March 14, 2022) – Meyers, a national leader in branded packaging, product labeling, and retail in-store display solutions for global brands, is proud to join The Climate Pledge alongside 300 other leading businesses, including Amazon, BestBuy, PepsiCo, Procter & Gamble, Unilever, Nespresso, Quorn, and others. Sustainability has long been a core value at Meyers, with reducing emissions being a primary area of focus in how the company makes its products and conducts business in general.
The Climate Pledge is a commitment to net zero carbon by 2040 that forms a cross-sector community of companies and organizations, working together to crack the climate crisis and solve the challenges of decarbonizing our economy. The Climate Pledge was co-founded by Amazon and Global Optimism in 2019 and calls on signatories to be net zero carbon across their businesses by 2040. Companies and organizations that sign the Pledge commit to three areas of action:
- Measure and report greenhouse gas emissions on a regular basis.
- Implement decarbonization strategies in line with the Paris Agreement through real business changes and innovations, including efficiency improvements, renewable energy, materials reductions, and other carbon emission elimination strategies.
- Neutralize any remaining emissions with additional, quantifiable, real, permanent, and socially-beneficial offsets to achieve net zero annual
“Leadership is about building a coalition and getting that group moving in the right direction – a direction that leaves the world in a better place than we found it, not one focused solely on financial success,” said Chris Dillion, CEO, Meyers. “I applaud The Climate Pledge for helping lead us in the right direction on climate change and I’m proud to see our team join.”
“It’s important that businesses recognize that greenhouse gas emissions, including carbon emissions, are a form of pollution. And, that pollution is catching up with all of us in a very serious way,” states Michael Dillon, Chief Revenue Officer, Meyers. “That helps clarify why it’s critical that we stop creating this pollution as quickly as we can and why we must offset any pollution that remains. While the situation grows more dire each year, it’s never too late to join the movement to protect our planet.”
