The CEO of Cargill joined 29 other business leaders in urging President Donald Trump to keep the United States a part of the Paris climate agreement, according to Cargill’s website.
Dave MacLennan joined 29 other major company CEOs in calling for the inaction in an open letter published Wednesday in The Wall Street Journal.
The letter reads in part, “…we are concerned about keeping the doors open for the global flow of American manufactured goods and products at this critical time when our manufacturing sector is starting to grow from our competitive energy advantage.
“Based on our vast experience doing business all over the world, we believe there is strong potential for negative trade implications if the United States exits from the Paris Agreement.”
Cargill is a Wayzata-based company.
