LEAD on CLIMATE 2020 will virtually bring together businesses large and small, from sectors across the US economy, to call on Congress to pass a resilient stimulus plan while working toward long term climate solutions—including a price on carbon.

On May 13, businesses will make the case for a climate-smart recovery.

As Congress considers various paths to recovery from the health and economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, it should strive to build back better, by planning for a more resilient economy. Lawmakers should protect against future shocks and systemic threats—including those associated with climate change.

Businesses will advocate for:

  • Investment in resilient infrastructure

  • Immediate investment in the country’s transition to a net-zero emissions economy

  • Longer-term solutions, including a price on carbon

As Congress considers paths to recovery from the health and economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, it must build back better, seeking to build a more resilient economy — that includes considering the threat of climate change.
Relief packages to small businesses and individuals have been vital but stimulus funding should take a broader view that takes the climate crisis into account.
Congress should enact policies to support efforts to mitigate climate risk and invest in a net-zero emissions economy, as well as longer-term solutions, including a price on carbon.
