• Apple Backing White House's 'Climate Pledge'

    On Monday in Washington D.C., the White House, Secretary of State John Kerry and senior White House officials announced plans to host a baker's dozen (13) of prominent companies with a major presence in the U.S. for a critically important meeting.

    Administration officials are hosting 13 of the largest companies from across the American economy who "are standing with the Obama Administration to launch the American Business Act on Climate Pledge," a statement from the White House reads.

    And, naturally, Cupertino's top tech titan is among the bunch.

    All told, the companies include: Alcoa, Apple, Bank of America, Berkshire Hathaway Energy, Cargill, Coca-Cola, General Motors, Goldman Sachs, Google, Microsoft, PepsiCo, UPS, and Walmart.

    A press release from the White House notes that the companies making pledges as part of today’s launch represent more than $1.3 trillion in revenue in 2014 and a combined market capitalization of at least $2.5 trillion.

    In short, the companies are standing with the President to help reach the "achievable goal" of reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
