One of the most powerful ways we can mitigate climate impacts is through the support of federal or regional policy to influence climate friendly business practices. The recent IPCC report and The National Climate Assessment call for urgent action and pricing carbon emissions is fundamental to this effort. For the first time in a decade bipartisan federal legislation has been introduced to price pollution while stimulating the economy.
In April, the Climate Collaborative is pleased to host a webinar organized by climate policy experts Business Climate Leaders and American Sustainable Business Council. The webinar will dive deep into carbon pricing--why a price on carbon is an important policy tool, how it can be implemented, and what the current political landscape around carbon pricing looks like.
The webinar provides an opportunity for companies to understand their role in advocating for carbon pricing, at a high level and around specific legislation; and we'll take a look at how companies in our industry have advocated for carbon pricing schemes to date. This will be brought to life through review of real-life examples of how natural product sector companies have advocated for carbon pricing, including a presentation by Danone North America's VP of Federal and Industry Affairs, on their efforts around climate policy.
