Why Businesses are Backing Carbon Pricing
September 19 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Earlier this year, top business leaders from across the country — representing more than 2.8 million employees globally — lobbied Capitol Hill to put a price on carbon pollution. It was one of many indications that businesses, big and small, are beginning to recognize that an economy-wide price on carbon is the most efficient and cost-effective tool to achieve necessary emissions reductions. It is also a policy that can generate needed revenue for investments in green infrastructure, clean tech innovation, and ease the transition into the low-carbon economy of the future.Why is business engagement essential in reducing greenhouse gas emissions?
How can advocates, business leaders, and policymakers work together to pass bold climate solutions? How can we elevate the voices of businesses to become leaders in the carbon pricing conversation? Join us for our upcoming Deep Dive webinar where we will answer these questions with our guests, leaders from The World Bank and The International Emissions Trading Association.
