Aaron Levie, CEO of cloud management service Box Inc., echoed those sentiments, saying it was “incredibly disappointing.”

Brad Smith, Microsoft’s President and Chief Legal Officer,  wrote a full blog post on the matter, saying “climate change is an urgent issue that demands global action.”

In a series of tweets, Amazon said it remains “committed to putting our scale and inventive culture to work in ways that are good for the environment.”
