CEO Climate Dialogue Statement on Build Back Better Act Clean Energy Tax Credits
November 19, 2021
Washington, DC — In response to the House passage of the Build Back Better Act, the CEO Climate Dialogue (CCD) — a broad-based coalition of 26 leading businesses and institutions representing multiple sectors across the U.S. economy — environmental advocacy, manufacturing, utilities, agriculture and food, energy and resources, automotive, chemicals, and financial services — issued the following statement:
“The climate provisions of the Build Back Better Act would make historic investments in reducing emissions across the economy, representing the strongest federal climate legislation to date in the United States.
“In order to avert the worst impacts of climate change and fully seize the opportunities presented by a transition to clean energy, additional economy-wide action is needed. CCD looks forward to working with the U.S. Congress to further the momentum around other effective climate policies, including a carbon price, that will position the U.S. for success in achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.”
