January 20, 2021

Washington – Business Roundtable Energy and Environment Committee Chair George Oliver, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Johnson Controls, today issued the following statement on behalf of Business Roundtable:

“Business Roundtable strongly supports the U.S. rejoining the international effort to combat climate change and create a healthier, more sustainable future. We look forward to collaborating with the new Administration to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement both internationally and here in the U.S.”
