Joining 32 major U.S. companies, Aspen Skiing Co. sent a strong message to President Obama and Congress to take action on climate change this week. SkiCo, and other major businesses, signed the Climate Declaration which urges Congress to address climate change by promoting clean energy, boosting efficiency and limiting carbon emissions. It was signed by major consumer brands such as Nike, eBay, L’Oreal, IKEA, Starbucks and The North Face.
The declaration urges that policy on climate change is one of the strongest economic opportunities in the 21st century. Combined, the 33 signatories represent about 475,000 U.S. jobs and generate a combined annual revenue of approximately $450 billion, according to Ceres. The campaign is organized by Ceres and its BICEP (Business for Innovative Climate & Energy Policy) coalition. For a complete list, visit climatedeclaration.us.
Aspen Skiing Co. owns and operates Aspen Mountain, Snowmass, Aspen Highlands, and Buttermilk, as well as the The Little Nell and Limelight Hotel properties in the Roaring Fork Valley.
