Climate & Energy Working Group
The objective of ASBC’s Climate & Energy working group is to discuss and identify key problems, solutions and strategies to address the climate and energy crisis our planet is facing. Global temperature has been on the rise, with the first decade of the 21st century the warmest on record. Overwhelmingly, scientists agree that man-made climate change is occurring. Climate events are indisputably more frequent, more severe and more destructive. Yet many policymakers have avoided meaningful action to reverse these effects, sometimes claiming that addressing climate change would hamper businesses and the economy. The opposite is true.
ASBC is committed to continue educating and engaging business leaders to advocatie on behalf of market shifts and public policy change to advance renewable energy, support a carbon tax, the Green New Deal, sustainable infrastructure, the climate strikes and other efforts.
