General Mills, Best Buy and Target enlist in Obama's global warming initiative

 


WASHINGTON – Best Buy, General Mills and Target joined dozens of other major U.S. companies Monday in pledging to join a White House initiative to reduce carbon pollution and backing efforts to reach a global climate deal at upcoming talks in Paris.

The trio of Minnesota corporations join Minnetonka-based Cargill, which signed on to President Obama’s climate change plan in July.

Obama has touted corporate cooperation as a vital part of his environmental agenda. He now has enlisted 81 of America’s biggest firms in the effort, including Apple, General Motors, Coca-Cola and Wal-Mart. Collectively they employ 9 million people.
