CAMPAIGN: Timberland’s Commitment to the Outdoors

CONTENT: Article

States with robust economies, new jobs, and increased investment all have one thing in common: forward-thinking clean energy policies that help businesses plan for the future. Here in the Northeast, the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) is part of a legacy of clean energy leadership, which sets an annual cap for the region’s aggregate greenhouse gas emissions across nine states. The first cooperative effort of its kind, RGGI is a critical tool empowering businesses such as Timberland to invest in our future while also reducing costs.

In particular, RGGI sets a limit on carbon pollution from power plants throughout Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont, while at the same time generating revenue for statewide energy efficiency programs.

As a global outdoor lifestyle brand based in the beautiful Granite State, Timberland has always been driven by a commitment to innovate and operate in a responsible manner. We’ve found that a commitment to responsible use of resources is good for the planet, and good for business.
