We advocate for climate policies that would create and maintain a resilient and sustainable future for the local business community.
In partnership with Climate XChange, we specialize in carbon pricing policy and advocacy.
Setting a price on carbon assigns a fair price to fossil fuels for their associated costs on society in the form of pollution and climate change. We need a strong price incentive to encourage energy suppliers and consumers to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels, moving to more efficient, local energy sources.
