“The Gap” Is Harnessing The Wind

American corporations are continuing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and make their operations greener around the world. American retailer, Target has committed to source 100% of its electricity from renewable energy. Retail giant, Walmart has committed to achieving zero waste in their global operations by 2025. Technology giants Amazon, Facebook, Google and Microsoft are aggressively investing in renewable energy to eliminate greenhouse gas emission in all their global operations.

American apparel retailer, The Gap Inc. has recently announced that it has signed its third long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) for renewable energy. The new PPA provides The Gap with power from the 90 MW capacity Aurora Wind Project, located in South Dakota.

The Gap is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in all their global operations. The company’s goals are to reduce 2015 emissions by 50% by 2020 and to use 100% renewable energy in all their global operations by 2030.

The Gap, founded in 1969 is a multinational clothing and accessory retailer. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, California and is the largest specialty retailer in the United States. The Gap has approximately 135,000 employees and operates 3,727 stores around the world.

Candidates in the upcoming 2020 elections are looking for topics to “set themselves apart.” Unfortunately, a common campaign technique has been to attack the private sector. Some candidates are now using Socialist dogma to demonize Capitalism and successful companies like The Gap.

In my opinion, American industry has done far more to reduce greenhouse gas emissions than the states in which the Socialist advocates reside. American industry and our government should be collaborating to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to develop reliable, sustainable, cost effective, renewable energy. Let’s stop the hate filled, polarizing rhetoric.
