Momentum is growing for climate action

March 17, 2021

A diverse group of business leaders, social justice advocates, environmentalists, labor and philanthropists have joined together to call on the state Senate Ways and Means Committee to pass the Climate Commitment Act.  That vote is scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday, at 4pm.

Let your legislators know how important it is to act on the urgent issue of climate now by registering your support here.

On Monday, a broad range of supporters described to legislators the imperative of acting this session to put Washington on a path to reducing, not increasing, carbon emissions.  

MacDonald-Miller Facility Solutions Vice President Perry England said:

 “We have lost a decade or more trying to get to a consensus on climate policy while carbon emissions have increased in Washington State. It is time to make reducing carbon emissions a priority while growing our economy.  A cap and invest program will make both happen.

Paula F. Sardinas, with the Washington Build-Back Black Alliance said:

“There are several pieces [of this policy] that are just fundamental: Creation of jobs; climate justice in the environment; making sure that the overburdened communities receive the bulk of those dollars allocated… We do believe this is both good and sound fiscal policy.”

Clean & Prosperous Washington would like to thank the many organizations and businesses listed below that have voiced support for the Climate Commitment Act.  Join the momentum by signing the Climate Commitment Act Declaration.
