Principles of Business Leaders for Climate Solutions

  1. Climate change is the defining challenge for our time. If we act now, solutions are affordable and create business opportunities for our region – failure to act poses catastrophic risks to our economy, quality of life, and future generations.

  2. As Northwest business leaders, we support strong action to implement well-designed climate policy at the state, regional, and federal level. At a minimum we need to limit emissions of global warming pollution to levels that reflect the existing scientific consensus and create a price on carbon emissions that will catalyze investment and drive powerful market-based solutions. We also need to support strong supplementary policies that drive cost-effective reductions in global warming pollution in all sectors of the economy, reduce energy use, and spur investment in clean and energy-efficient technology.

  3. We are committed to helping our region to become a leader in the transition to a clean and lean energy economy through sustainable business practices, strategic investment, and support for good policy solutions.
