Home Appliance Industry: Commitment to Climate Action & Sustainability Leadership
The home appliance industry and everyone with an interest in climate policy will be watching the events in Glasgow, Scotland, closely as approximately 30,000 delegates meet for the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference, known as COP26. The conference is a major event every year, but this year’s has special significance, as it marks five years since the signing of the Paris agreement. Just two years from now, under the agreement, the countries who signed will have to report on actions they have taken and progress they have made to mitigate climate change. COP26 will bring intense discussions about climate policy, even among those not directly participating, including how products like home appliances affect the environment. With the world’s eyes on climate policy, this is the time to reiterate the industry’s history of progress toward more sustainable products and our ongoing commitment to the environment.
