Task Force on Climate Actions

The Chamber’s Task Force on Climate Actions engages members on a range of investments, innovations, and internal processes that businesses are employing to tackle climate change. This task force enables the Chamber to become smarter about the impact of both existing climate policies and future proposals on the business community.

Why the Task Force on Climate Actions is Important

The specifics learned through this task force help inform and shape opportunities for the Chamber and its members to address climate change and continue to be a credible voice in the policy debate. The Task Force on Climate Actions serves as a platform for engaging companies across its broad membership on solutions to this important issue. The task force is open to all Chamber member companies, state and local chambers, and member trade associations.
