I am concerned about the serious risks that climate change poses for present and future generations.
With my signature I agree to take the following actions:
I pledge to join Yorktown100 to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Yorktown, NY to net zero by 2040.
I promise to do my best to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions caused by me and to cut my personal climate footprint by half within ten years or faster.
To achieve the target, I will pay attention to the climate footprint of my energy use, traveling, eating, consumption habits, household appliances and financial savings. I will make low-carbon choices wherever possible.
I pledge to consider addressing my unavoidable climate footprint by offsetting emissions which I cannot reduce, to become climate neutral now.
I will share my experiences in making cleaner choices with my family, friends, neighbors, colleagues and politicians, and encourage them to sign the pledge, too.
By signing the Yorktown100 Pledge modeled after the Global Climate Pledge, I’m sending a message to the decision makers, companies, my community and to all levels of society, to implement ambitious policies and practices which prevent the harmful effects of climate change and to secure the living conditions of mankind.
