Levi Strauss, Gap, Autodesk Support California Clean Energy Bill

Twenty-four companies with a large footprint in California announced their support for SB 350 that sets new benchmarks for increasing renewable energy and energy efficiency by 2030. Their support was communicated in a letter sent to the bill’s author, Senate President pro Tempore, Kevin de León.

SB 350 calls for a 50 percent increase in energy efficiency in buildings and a goal of 50 percent of state utilities’ power coming from renewable energy, all by 2030.

Many of the signatory companies have set their own renewable energy and energy efficiency goals, milestones that will be more achievable with enactment of SB 350.

Autodesk, for example has decreased its carbon footprint 38 percent since 2009 through a combination of housing its operations in LEED-certified buildings, adoption of solar PV systems and increasing the energy efficiency of its data servers.
