The pledge emphasizes that customers in the shipping industry, such as Amazon, place on improving environmental performance across all touchpoints in their value chains.

FREMONT, CA: Midstream Lighting, a leader in energy-efficient LED lighting technology, recently signed The Climate Pledge. Midstream Lighting intends to reduce carbon emissions in the marine supply chain by enhancing the efficiency of lighting solutions by working with signatories and in partnership with port and terminal owners and operators.

"I strongly believe small, fast-growing companies such as Midstream are vital to helping make The Climate Pledges vision succeed. This cannot happen without the commitment and involvement of companies like Midstream that are at the cutting edge of energy reduction technologies," said Yuli Grig, Commercial Director and Co-founder, Midstream Lighting.

The pledge emphasizes that customers in the shipping industry, such as Amazon, place on improving environmental performance across all touchpoints in their value chains. Because Midstream's LED lighting solutions have been shown to increase energy efficiency by 70 percent in port and terminal applications, it is ideally positioned to assist operators in improving their sustainability credentials to support their own company and their customers' objectives.

Midstream has also committed to improving its environmental performance. Its objectives include measuring and reporting greenhouse gas emissions, adopting decarburization methods following the Paris Agreement using energy-efficient technology, and neutralizing any remaining carbon emissions by 2040 to attain net-zero yearly carbon emissions. Midstream is already setting the standard in this area, with DNV's ISO 14001:2015 accreditation demonstrating how environmental management is at the heart of its operations.

Today, improving the energy efficiency of global ports and terminals necessitates easily available, economical, and simple solutions to deploy. Inefficient lighting accounts for about 5 percent of global emissions and must be included as part of the global market's pathway to net-zero emissions. Amazon and Global Optimism co-founded the Climate Pledge in 2019. It is a pledge to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2040, ten years ahead of the Paris Agreement's deadline. PepsiCo, Colgate-Palmolive, Visa, and several other firms have already signed the pledge.
