Steve Melink's 30th Anniversary Keynote - The Clean Energy Revolution

Jun 6, 2017

Steve Melink celebrates his company’s 30th anniversary by inviting partners and friends to join the clean energy revolution. The U.S. led the flight, computer, Internet, and every other age of the 20th century, but risks losing the biggest opportunity of the 21st century to China.  The world’s population growth from 7 to 12 billion will not be sustained by fossil fuels.  For economic, security, health, and environmental reasons, the U.S. needs to pivot to clean energy.  Fortunately, the business sector is starting to lead the way to attract Millennials and build brand power.  Solar and wind energy, along with battery storage and electric cars, are the way of the future.  Kick the fossil fuel habit and become a leader in your industry and community by doing the right thing for the planet and future generations.  Not to mention your children.




A Letter To Employees From Steve Melink Regarding The Paris Climate Agreement

Jun 2, 2017

Hi Everyone,

I am sure you heard that President Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord, and some of you may be wondering what the impact will be for Melink and other like-minded leaders in the clean energy age. The answer is none. No impact, zero, zilch, nada!

Our commitment is unequivocal. We are not less steadfast - we are more steadfast in the face of bad politics and fake news. We have to be because our U.S. and global economy, security, health, and environment depend on it. Climate change, in particular, is a growing risk and threat that we must fight today and not after it becomes too late. Our children and future generations will see this as our ultimate legacy.   

The Paris Climate Agreement was signed by almost 200 countries. It is supported by many of the largest and most successful companies in the U.S., including Apple, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, GE, P&G, Bank of America, Walt Disney, Pacific gas & Electric, Salesforce, 3M, Citigroup, Corning, Coca-Cola, Goldman Sachs, Dow Chemical, Johnson & Jonson, Morgan Stanley, Tesla, Unilever, and many others.

This is not about jobs in Pittsburgh verses Paris. This is infinitely larger. And hence we will continue our good work to ensure we end up on the right side of history. Science and data will lead us, not rhetoric and short term thinking.             

We are just a medium-sized company, but our leadership and influence is critical in our state, industry, and the local communities in which we live. Thanks for living our mission and sharing this journey with me.

Back to work …
