LEAD on Climate 2020 to Be Largest-Ever Virtual Lawmaker Advocacy Day for Climate Action

300+ businesses in the largest-ever call to action from business leaders to the US Congress will call for a build-back-better strategy that centers around a resilient, clean energy economy.

This Wednesday (May 13), more than 250 institutional investors, CEOs and other representatives from a cross-sector coalition of major companies including Danone, DSM North America, Dow, Eileen Fisher, General Mills, IKEA, KeHE Enterprises, Mars, Microsoft, NIKE and VISA will come together for the largest-ever virtual lawmaker education and advocacy day. They will call on Congress to build back a more resilient, sustainable economy post COVID-19. 

Led by Ceres, LEAD on Climate 2020 will make the case to US House and Senate lawmakers on both sides of the aisle that a climate-smart recovery is needed to “build back better” — and urge them to put forth new policies to protect against future shocks and systemic risks stemming from the climate crisis.  

Specifically, they will call for:

  • an accelerated transition to a net-zero emissions economy by 2050 or sooner

  • more investment in resilient infrastructure

  • support for longer-term, market-wide policy mechanisms such as a price on carbon.

"Policymakers must ensure that the decisions that are being taken today to rebuild our economy also factor in the dire climate consequences that are not too far behind,” said Mindy Lubber, Ceres CEO and President. “They have the potential to reshape a new resilient economy in fundamental ways that prevent the next climate-fueled crisis. We, along with hundreds of companies and investors, are counting on them to LEAD on Climate and accelerate the just transition to a net-zero emissions future.”

We’ll be on pins and needles …
