Avery Dennison Joins Call for “Strong Step Forward” at Paris Talks

December 2nd, 2015 by Casey Flores

Calling climate change “an imminent global threat that demands urgent action from all segments of society,” Avery Dennison Corp. management has signed the American Business Act on Climate Pledge, a White House initiative to enlist U.S. companies in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

“Signing the pledge was an easy decision because we’re already doing the things that the pledge asked of us,” says Dean Scarborough, Avery Dennison’s chairman and CEO. “We unequivocally support an agreement coming out of Paris that takes a strong step toward a low-carbon future. We are cutting our own carbon emissions and taking additional measures to tackle climate change.”

With this pledge, Avery Dennison is joining more than 140 companies who have voiced support for a “strong outcome” at the United Nations Climate Change Conference being held in Paris from November 30 to December 11 and have underscored their commitment to reducing emissions from their operations.
