Climate Action Hits Top of Agenda for U.S. Chamber

Its new task force will study the  business community’s views on climate policy

This week, as world leaders gathered at the United Nations (U.N.) to discuss climate change, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced a plan to be part of the conversation and consider how it members can contribute to potential solutions.

Timed to the U.N. Climate Action Summit—which featured a fiery speech by 16-year-old activist Greta Thunberg—the Chamber announced a new task force that will study the  business community’s views on climate policy and steps that businesses can take to help protect the planet, according to Neil Bradley, the chamber’s executive vice president and chief policy officer.

“This task force will enable us to become smarter about the impact of both existing policies and future proposals on the business community and proactively shape opportunities for the chamber and our members to address climate change,” Bradley said in a statement. “By establishing this group, the chamber will have a formal process to continually engage companies across our broad membership on this important issue.”
