In late October, INTREN’s CEO & Founder, Loretta Rosenmayer, was invited to the White House by utility provider Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) to discuss global climate initiatives with President Obama, senior administration officials and a handful of CEOs from major corporations. Rosenmayer, PG&E CEO and Chairman, Tony Earley, along with CEO’s from Johnson & Johnson, Berkshire Hathaway Energy Co., Intel Corp., and Hershey Co., and their key suppliers participated in a roundtable discussion about the necessity of taking steps to reduce greenhouse gases and address the impact of global warming.
President Obama sought the support from private and public companies alike as he prepared to participate in the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in November, 2015.
In 2011, INTREN began participating in the Electric Utility Industry Sustainable Supply Chain Alliance (EUISSCA) that was formed to improve environmental performance in the electric utility industry supply chain. In support of the White House Initiative for Climate Change, INTREN has made further commitments to reduce its carbon footprint. INTREN pledges to continue to work on reducing greenhouse gases throughout the company, to support using a percentage of clean renewable electric energy in our offices, to make changes to reduce commuting miles for employees and to continue to report our improvements to the EUISSCA.
