April 2020
Your destination for clean energy news.
Did you know Earth Day (April 22) marks its 50th anniversary this year? And, quite fitting for Melink Corp's mission, the theme for Earth Day 2020 is climate action. The enormous challenge — but also the vast opportunities — of action on climate change have distinguished the issue as the most pressing topic for the 50th anniversary.

Though carbon pollution has been reduced in recent weeks due to COVID-19, climate change is still a long-term, global threat. It's time for a clean energy future that is safer, healthier, and more resilient. Melink Corp is committed to continue doing what we do best: providing energy solutions for a brighter tomorrow, making the world a better place, one building at a time.

In this spirit, Chairman and CEO Steve Melink has announced the Melink 2025 Pledge for employees to reduce their individual carbon footprints. T o further leverage this pledge, we ask that our local, state, regional, and national partners join us. It is a small premium to do the right thing, and it’s getting smaller every day. Let’s create a better world for our children and grandchildren — all of us, together.    

Kind regards,
Allison Sternad
Melink Director of Marketing & Sustainability
