The U.S. government may be in the process of formally withdrawing from the term of the Paris Agreement, an international accord on targets to fight climate change, but major U.S. employers say they'll stay the course in a new statement jointly signed by a group of around 80 chief executives and U.S. labor organization leaders. The statement, posted at UnitedForTheParisAgreement.com, represents a group that either directly employs more than 2 million people in the U.S., or represents a larger group of 12.5 million through labor organizations.

《巴黎协定》(Paris Agreement,以下简称《协定》)是一份旨在应对气候变化的国际公约,尽管美国政府正处在正式退出该协定的程序当中,但美国的一些重要企业在一份联署的新声明中表示——参加联署的是大约 80 位企业首席执行官和美国劳动组织领导人——他们将继续遵守《协定》。这份声明发表在 UnitedForTheParisAgreement.com 上面,它所代表的企业集团在美国直接雇佣员工超过了 200 万;或者,通过劳工组织,它代表着一个拥有 1250 万名成员的更大群体。

The group collectively says they are “still in” on the Agreement, which many of the undersigned also supported vocally back in 2017 when the Trump administration announced its intent to formally remove itself. They also “urge the United States” to reconsider its current course and also agree to remain committed to the agreement. The Agreement will not only help to potentially counter the ongoing impacts of global climate change, the group says in the letter, but also prepare the way for a “just transition” of the U.S. workforce to “new decent, family supporting jobs and economic opportunity,” implying that bowing out of the Agreement will actually impede the U.S. workforce's ability to compete on a global scale.

该群体集体表示,他们 “仍在支持”《协定》。早在 2017 年,当特朗普政府宣布打算正式退出《协定》时,今天的联署者中就曾有很多人发声支持过《协定》。此外,该群体还 “敦促美国政府” 重新考虑其当前的路线,并一致同意要继续遵守《协定》。该群体在声明中表示,《协定》不仅将有助于应对全球气候变化带来的持续性影响,而且还将为美国劳动力 “公正过渡” 到 “新的、体面的、能够供养家庭的工作和经济机会” 铺平道路,也就是说退出《协定》实际上会对美国劳动力在全球范围内的竞争力造成妨碍。

Apple CEO Tim Cook shared the renewed commitment on Twitter, noting in part that “humanity has never faced a greater or more urgent threat than climate change,” and other prominent tech executives have also co-signed, including Microsoft's Satya Nadella, Tesla's Elon Musk, Google's Sundar Pichai and Adobe's Shantanu Narayen. Chief executives from other powerful U.S. companies across industries are also represented, including Coca-Cola's James Quincey, Patagonia's Rose Marcario, Unilever's Alan Jope and Walt Disney's Robert Iger.

苹果首席执行官蒂姆·库克(Tim Cook)在 Twitter 上分享了这份新承诺,并指出 “人类从未面临比气候变化更大或更紧迫的威胁”。其他一些知名科技公司的高管也参加了联署,包括微软的萨蒂亚·纳德拉(Satya Nadella)、特斯拉的伊隆·马斯克(Elon Musk)、谷歌的桑德尔·皮查伊(Sundar Pichai),以及奥多比的山塔努·纳拉延(Shantanu Narayen)。此外,美国其他行业重要公司的高管同样签署了这份声明,包括可口可乐的詹姆斯·昆西(James Quincey)、巴塔哥尼亚的罗斯·马卡里奥(Rose Marcario)、联合利华的阿伦·约佩(Alan Jope),以及迪士尼的罗伯特·艾格(Robert Iger)。
