Climate Change and Environment

The Chamber strongly supports continued environmental improvements, including sensible approaches to addressing climate change.

Our Priorities

We believe that economic growth and environmental progress are not mutually exclusive goals.

To make further progress, we should be guided by what has already worked: gains in efficiency, new technologies, and the increased use of natural gas and renewable fuels.

 


Addressing Climate Change

The climate is changing and humans are contributing to these changes.

We believe that there is much common ground on which all sides of this discussion could come together to address climate change with policies that are practical, flexible, predictable, and durable. We believe in a policy approach that acknowledges the costs of action and inaction and the competitiveness of the U.S. economy.
