CAMBRIDGE, ENGLAND — Geelen Counterflow said on Dec. 16 that it has signed the Paris Pledge for Action (L’Appel de Paris).
“We have signed this pledge because man-made global warming is an urgent threat to the world we leave to our children and because the feed- and food industry that we are active in can and must play an important role in solving this problem, as confirmed by the signing of this pledge by companies such as Mars, Nestlé, Unilever, Kellog, Arla, Danone, Coca Cola, DSM, BASF, Tesco, Carrefour, etc.,” said Sander Geelen, managing director of Geelen Counterflow.
Geelen Counterflow designs, manufactures and services counterflow dryers and coolers for feed and food products.
The Paris Pledge for Action is an opportunity for non-state actors to welcome the Paris Agreement on climate change and commit to implement it.
The pledge demonstrates that non-state actors are ready to play their part to support the objectives of the Paris Agreement. By joining the pledge, businesses, cities, civil society groups, investors, regions, trade unions and other signatories promise to ensure that the ambition set out by the Paris Agreement is met or exceeded to limit global temperature rise to less than 2 degrees Celsius.
