ICC applauds the Biden Administration’s commitment to cut emissions in half by 2030

  • 22 April 2021

ICC has issued the following statement in support of the Biden Administration's commitment to cut American greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030.

ICC Secretary General John W.H. Denton AO said:

“Tremendous to see the Biden Administration putting the United States at the forefront of the global effort to tackle climate change. Those claiming that the plan will impose too great a cost on the American economy are, simply put, looking at this in the wrong way.

Business knows full well that effects of climate change can’t simply be wished away. Science tells us that ambitious action is needed.

The real challenge will be to design policies that work for and with Main Street throughout the United States. The administration’s target may be big – but the trick will be to ‘think small’ in shaping smart interventions that allow the millions of small businesses across America to reduce their emissions footprint without it impacting the health of their balance sheets.”
