Sherwood Design Engineers recently attended the launch of the Business Council on Climate Change in San Francisco. Held at the South Light Court in City Hall, this event featured Mayor Gavin Newsom; Jared Blumenfeld, Director of the SF DOE; Jim Wunderman, President and CEO of the Bay Area Council; RK Stewart FAIA, Principal at Gensler; Gavin Power, Senior Advisor at the UN Global Compact.
The event was to announce the partnership of the City of San Francisco with the Bay Area Council of businesses with the United Nations Global Compact to commit the city and its businesses to Five Principles of Climate Leadership.
The five principals are as follows:
1. Internal Implementation
2. Community Leaders
3. Advocacy and Dialogue
4. Collective Action
5. Transparency and Disclosure
The BC3 is seeking more Bay Area Businesses to sign on and support these initiatives. SDE will step up and do so. In later postings we’ll go into more detail about these principals and our company’s response. For now, if you are interested in more information, check out this link to learn more about the principals.
