“The care of the environment is part of the company’s philosophy,” he said. “Today, more than ever, all of society must take on this commitment and join forces. Grupo Bimbo endorses its 2015 commitment by signing the Paris Agreement and will continue to work for a better planet for future generations.”

President Trump said the Paris Agreement cost the U.S. economy nearly $3 trillion in reduced output, over 6 million industrial jobs and more than 3 million manufacturing jobs.In addition to supporting the Paris Agreement, Mr. Servitje signed the U.N.’s New York Declaration of Forests in 2014, which seeks to half deforestation by 2020 and eliminate it entirely by 2030.
