Charting a Low-Carbon Course for the U.S. Economy

American business understands that there is both opportunity in getting ahead of the climate curve, and considerable risk and cost to inaction. The Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) and the Edison Electric Institute co-host this side event to showcase the actions of mainstream US businesses, including those who have signed the American Business Act on Climate Pledge, and are members of the C2ES Business Environmental Leadership Council, a group of 30 companies with a combined $2.3 trillion in revenue and over 3 million employees that support mandatory climate policy and are acting to reduce emissions.
