National Grid joins call for US commitment to the Paris Agreement

As one of the world’s largest investor-owned energy companies and an employer of over 22,000 people, we are proud to support a call from 70 CEOs, companies and union leaders to ask the US to stay in the Paris Agreement.

National Grid’s CEO John Pettigrew said: “The scale and potential impact of the climate crisis has never been more real. At National Grid, we know we have a critical role in the acceleration towards a cleaner future and are committed to playing our part.

“The promise of the Paris Agreement is one of a just and prosperous world – something that can only be achieved through a collective effort of business, unions and governments that places climate action at the heart of everything we do.”
