The Business Case for Ambitious, Bipartisan Climate Action

In a recent statement organized by C2ES, 47 leading companies jointly urged President-elect Biden and the new Congress to work together to enact ambitious, durable, and bipartisan climate solutions. At this virtual event, top corporate leaders will outline the business case for climate action. In addition, C2ES will release its detailed recommendations for the new Administration and Congress.

C2ES’s Climate Innovation 2050 initiative brings together companies from key sectors to examine challenges and solutions in decarbonizing the U.S. economy. Drawing on these discussions, C2ES’s new recommendations identify top priorities to drive climate innovation, reduce emissions, strengthen climate resilience, remedy inequities, and support the post-pandemic economic recovery. Senior executives from Bank of America, LafargeHolcim, and PSEG will outline the steps their companies are taking and why they also support ambitious, bipartisan climate action.
