FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

Taproot Security "Still In" on Climate Change

Signs Another "We Are Still In" Climate Letter on Anniversary of Paris Agreement

 

Saint Paul, MN, December 12, 2020 –

December 12th marks the five-year anniversary of the world coming together to sign on to the Paris Agreement. Taproot Security is marking the moment by committing to a national mobilization for a clean energy economy and centering their own operations in pursuit of climate action. In doing so, we joined over a thousand leaders from local governments, businesses, universities, and other institutions across the country as part of the “America Is All In” multi-sector statement. 

 

This multi-sector statement will be delivered to the incoming Biden-Harris administration, as well as to United Nations officials and global heads of state at the Climate Ambition Summit hosted by the United Kingdom, also on December 12th. 

"It may seem unusual for an IT security firm to care about climate or environment," Taproot Security founder Mike McCormick said when he first joined the effort in 2017.  "But we've seen cyber threats rise in proportion to political instability, global conflict, income inequality, and food insecurity, all of which are driven in part by environmental conditions. By doing our part to make the planet livable, we make it less hostile."
