Business Leaders for Climate Action is a network of forward thinking businesses, associations, and industry leaders calling for Massachusetts to put a price on carbon.
Carbon pricing is quickly becoming “the new normal” across the country and the globe. In the US, 17 states either already have campaigns underway to put a price on carbon or are initiating them. Massachusetts has a tradition of leadership on major issues from abolition to women’s suffrage to healthcare. We can make history again by demonstrating that this innovative policy will not only reduce emissions but also improve our economy. Our leadership will help move policy forward in other states and at the federal level, showcasing Massachusetts at the forefront.
BLCA welcomes all businesses to our network to join the conversation, participate in monthly calls, and receive periodic updates on our campaign. Click here to connect with us.
Tackling climate change is the greatest challenge and the greatest economic opportunity of our generation.
Business Leaders for Climate Action is ready to take on this opportunity. Economists, politicians, and business leaders from all sides of the aisle agree that an economy-wide carbon price is the most efficient and cost-effective tool to achieve significant emissions reductions while ensuring a smooth transition to a low-carbon economy. Pricing carbon will harness the power of the market, encouraging clean energy and efficiency, spurring innovation and stimulating economic growth.
