CCD Holds CEO Fly-in

July 26, 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C. — This is a pivotal moment for climate action in the United States that requires the public and private sectors to work together to address the growing climate crisis. Climate risks—economic, environmental, and health—continue to intensify and with it the need to put in place policies that will help us to significantly reduce carbon emissions and accelerate the U.S. transition to a low-carbon economy.

As a broad-based coalition of 4 leading environmental organizations and 22 top businesses representing multiple sectors across the U.S. economy — manufacturing, utilities, agriculture and food, energy and resources, automotive, chemicals, and financial services— the CEO Climate Dialogue recognizes this urgency and on July 26, 2022 came to DC to directly urges the Biden administration and Congress to reenergize the climate conversation and to prioritize the enactment of market-based climate policies, like an economy-wide price on carbon, that are needed to meet the scope and scale of the climate crisis.
