Gap Inc.

Gap's response re conflict between its climate commitments and participation in US Chamber of Commerce

Gap Inc. is not a member of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. We do participate in their international programming, but our contributions and our participation do not in any way contribute to the Chamber’s domestic positions on climate...We believe that action on climate change is not an option, but an imperative. At Gap Inc, we’re working towards cutting greenhouse gas emissions from our global facilities in half by the end of 2020, diverting waste from our U.S. facilities, and partnering with our suppliers around the world to adopt more sustainable manufacturing practices...Gap Inc. was an early and active supporter of the Paris Agreement and we were proud to join the We Mean Business coalition...Gap Inc. was one of more than 1,000 companies that signed the Business Backs Low-Carbon USA statement, urging continuation of U.S. involvement in the Paris Agreement...[and] joined the We Are Still In initiative to reiterate our commitment to bold climate action. We will continue to work with like-minded businesses, NGOs and other stakeholders to support solutions that will create a more sustainable and economically strong future for the people and communities touched by our business around the world.
