Leading businesses across the country are stepping up at a critical moment to urge Congress to support ambitious action on climate as part of the Build Back Better agenda. Having already passed a landmark bipartisan infrastructure package investing in the resilience and prosperity of our communities, Congress is now considering a budget reconciliation package that includes targeted investments in our nation’s low-carbon future, supporting clean energy technologies, and our long-term economic competitiveness, along with a range of other climate priorities.
These businesses have advocated for robust federal policy to support their ambitious pledges to decarbonize the emissions from their own operations and their entire value-chains. Browse this page to see what businesses are saying:
