Timberland knows energy efficiency bill would save help save money
Timberland knows from its own business practices that energy efficiency saves the company money. That's why, in a piece for the New Hampshire Union Leader, they discussed their support for energy efficiency legislation, co-sponsored by New Hampshire's Senator Jeanne Shaheen, currently moving through Congress.
“We see the effects of climate change — not only in our surroundings, but in our potential revenues. We don’t sell as many boots if the temperatures don’t plummet in November. We’re determined to protect our winters, and that starts with the way we run our business,” wrote Betsy Blaisdell of Timberland. “…To be sure, we know there is only so much one company can do.”
Timberland, a BICEP member and Climate Declaration signatory, encouraged lawmakers to embrace the economic opportunity of passing energy efficiency legislation and addressing climate change.
