State comptroller: 2 companies agree to climate change plans
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The office of New York state Comptroller Thomas Dinapoli says it has reached agreements with Dollar General and Under Armour under which the companies will release plans for what they’re doing to address climate change.
The reports are intended to show shareholders what the companies are doing to enhance energy efficiency and stem carbon emissions.
DiNapoli oversees the state’s pension investments and has used the state’s tremendous investment power to persuade firms to adopt policies to address climate change.
Messages left with Baltimore-based Under Armour and Dollar General, based in Goodletsville, Tennessee, were not immediately returned Monday.
