Haverkamp defends corporate climate pledges

September 22, 2021 Marketplace

As more and more corporations commit to reducing their greenhouse gas emissions, some are skeptical that these pledges are simply performative. But, Jennifer Haverkamp, professor of practice, says otherwise. 

"It’s a very important signal. Companies signing on to corporate pledges is an essential piece of the overall momentum that we need to get to reductions in greenhouse gas emissions," she said. “If they have interim targets along the way and clear plans for how to meet those interim targets, that’s a good sign."
