Clinton Fails To Follow Through On Her Pledge To Run A Carbon Neutral Campaign

- December 18, 2015

Clinton Made News In July By Announcing Her Campaign Would Be Carbon Neutral

Clinton's Campaign Announced In July They We're Planning On Doing A Carbon Neutral Campaign Similar To The One They Ran In 2007. "'We are committed to a carbon-neutral campaign,' Clinton spokesperson Brian Fallon told MSNBC this morning. The campaign did not respond to a request for detail, but Clinton's 2007 bid for the presidency involved a similar pledge." (Tony Dokoupil, "Clinton Campaign Goes 'Carbon Neutral,'" MSNBC, 7/28/15)

As Of Her October FEC Filing Clinton Had Yet To Make A Carbon Offset Purchase

Despite Clinton's Campaign Promise To Be Carbon Neutral, She Has Failed To Deliver. "Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign pledged that they would be carbon neutral back in July. But, to date, they have failed to live up to that promise." (Dan Merica, "Hillary Clinton's Campaign Is Not Yet Carbon Neutral, Despite Pledge," CNN, 10/26/15)

  • The Clinton Campaign Has Yet To Purchase Any Carbon Offsets According To Her FEC Campaign Filings. "There are no records of the Clinton campaign purchasing carbon offsets in their latest Federal Election Commission reports released earlier this month and, when asked, multiple campaign aides did not refute CNN's reporting that offsets have yet to be purchased." (Dan Merica, "Hillary Clinton's Campaign Is Not Yet Carbon Neutral, Despite Pledge," CNN, 10/26/15)

Clinton's Campaign Has Stated That Being Carbon Neutral Was Still "An Important Goal" And That They "Would Be Taking Steps To Meet This Goal." "On Monday, Josh Schwerin, a Clinton campaign spokesman, said that 'offsetting our carbon footprint is still an important goal for this campaign.' 'We will be taking steps to meet this goal,' Schwerin added." (Dan Merica, "Hillary Clinton's Campaign Is Not Yet Carbon Neutral, Despite Pledge," CNN, 10/26/15)
