While climate change remains a major issue in our nation’s political dialogue, it’s unclear whether President Donald Trump will keep the U.S. in the Paris Climate Agreement—an international accord created to fight the effects of climate change.

Tiffany & Co., a neighbor to N.Y.C.’s Trump Tower and the president’s youngest daughter’s namesake, is speaking out on the issue, urging Trump to remain in the Paris Agreement.

The company stated its plea on their Instagram and Twitter pages, as well as within an ad in The New York Times.

Tiffany strongly supports keeping the U.S. in the #ParisAgreement. #ClimateChange #ActOnClimate #TiffanyCSR

Tiffany & Co.'s Chief Sustainability Officer, Anisa Kamadoli Costa, offered a statement to InStyle:

“As part of Tiffany & Co.’s commitment to sustainability, we support the global movement to act on climate change. Using our brand to advocate for this important issue—in addition to Tiffany’s long-term goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050—is one of the most important actions we can take. Tiffany has long recognized the importance of protecting our fragile planet for future generations, and our aspiration is to leave behind a world that is as beautiful and abundant as the one we inherited."

President Trump has yet to issue a response.

Executive summary: Founder of Tiffany & Co.

Charles Lewis Tiffany was born in Connecticut, worked several years in his father's cotton mill, and came to New York City in his mid-twenties. There on 18 September 1837, with $1,000 in financial backing from his father, he opened Tiffany & Young with his childhood friend John F. Young. In its early years the shop specialized in upscale merchandise including jewelry, silverware, Asian and European curiosities, moccasins, belts, and other luxuries, but the store struggled and took on a third partner, J. L. Ellis in 1841, becoming Tiffany, Young & Ellis. In the late 1840s, as political upheaval spread across Europe and the price of diamonds from European brokers plummeted, Tiffany invested heavily in the precious stones. With this the shop became primarily a jeweler, and when his partners retired in 1853 he purchased their shares and reorganized the business as Tiffany & Co..

As it became clear that hostilities between the American North and South were imminent, Tiffany foresaw a drop in demand for fine jewelry in a nation at war, and diverted the company's investments to military equipment, including swords, medals, and light armor. By 1868 the firm had established offices in Geneva, London, and Paris. In 1877 Tiffany purchased what is now known as the Tiffany Diamond, the 287-carat dazzler long displayed at the Smithsonian, and worn by Audrey Hepburn in publicity photographs for the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany's. Tiffany, who died in 1902, originated several practices now standard in the jewelry industry, including a non-negotiable tagged price, the adoption of the sterling silver standard of 0.925 fine, publication of an early retail catalogue, and the basic six prong setting for the diamond engagement ring.

Noted glassmaker Louis Comfort Tiffany was his son. Alfreda Mitchell, who married Hiram Bingham III and was the mother of Hiram Bingham IV, was a granddaughter of Charles Lewis Tiffany, and economist George Gilder is his great-great-grandson.
