Bank of America Vows to Reduce GHG Emissions by 15 Percent

Bank of America Vows to Reduce GHG Emissions by 15 Percent

To that end, the global finance giant Bank of America announced yesterday that it has set a goal of reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 15 percent by 2015 based on the company’s 2010 baseline. BofA’s push is another example of the bank’s strong record on energy issues. In the United States, Bank of America reduced GHG emissions 18% between 2004 and 2009.

The answer lies in green building, supply chain efficiency, and internal employee engagement.
