Hawaii environmental advocacy groups reacted with appreciation Friday to a pledge from Hawaiian Electric Co. to reduce its carbon emissions from power generation by 70% by 2030, as relative to 2005 levels, while describing the commitment as ambitious.

The announcement coincided with the COP26 global climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland.

The U.S. and other nations have committed to attempt to hold global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius to avoid some of the worst threats posed by climate change.
