With Oregon legislators threatening to repeal the state's recently-enacted Clean Fuels program, and with no other signs of climate policy progress this legislative session, it is now more important than ever for businesses to join together in the call for action on climate. Hundreds of businesses across Oregon and Washington are calling for statewide action on climate change, and more businesses are needed to spur our policymakers into action.
Businesses from all aspects of the economy have united in this campaign. From ski resorts to brewers, from apparel manufacturing to coffee companies, sports teams and construction companies, software and hardware firms, banks and insurance companies, veterinary hospitals and auto shops, business large and small -- they all have something in common. They are saying there is a clear and present need for action on climate change to protect our region’s natural assets, its vibrant communities, and its growing economy.
But, if their actions are any indication, our policymakers don't appear to be listening.
We need your company to join the growing list of Oregon businesses who have declared tackling climate change to be one of the greatest economic opportunities of the 21st Century. Sign on to the Oregon Business Climate Declaration today:
“Starting today, right here, the Pacific Northwest can lead the way. We can create a healthy climate and a strong, more resilient economy, by fostering innovation, advancing public health, spurring economic development through job creation and speeding technological advancement throughout our region.”
