Near-Term Climate Action: An Opportunity for Bipartisan Progress

February 28 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

The start of a new Congress has brought a renewed focus on meeting the challenge of climate change. With recent events demonstrating both the rising costs of climate change and the economic benefits of cleaner energy, a growing majority of Americans and many leading companies favor stronger government action.

Proposals for carbon pricing and a Green New Deal have launched a vital debate about the broad contours of a comprehensive long-term solution. There are also important opportunities right now for bipartisan progress on meaningful near-term steps.

Join C2ES to hear from congressional leaders and top companies on the prospects for action in the 116th Congress and steps that can benefit the climate while contributing to U.S. growth and competitiveness.

To help inform the deliberations ahead, C2ES will outline a broad array of options for near-term federal actions that that can reduce emissions in the near term and strengthen the foundation for longer-term solutions. Developed with input from leading businesses as part of C2ES’s Climate Innovation 2050 initiative, these include steps on infrastructure, technology innovation, offshore wind, nuclear, carbon capture, efficiency, and zero-emission vehicles.
