Washington Business for Climate Action was formed around the belief that 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. We are business leaders who support using energy efficiently, investing in cleaner fuels, advancing renewable energy, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. We believe we can grow jobs, create new products that other states and countries will buy, and save money by responding to climate change. Our state has always led in technology advancement and innovation, and addressing climate change through smart policy will position us for the future and help us protect the things that we value most.
Washington State 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 through our state.
With support from over 250 companies, Washington Business Climate Declaration is a rolling call to action, urging the public, policymakers, and other business leaders to seize the opportunity that exists for Washington to join the growing group of states, regions, and countries that are investing in a low-carbon future.
