We Can Lead: Business for Climate Policy

Commitment by

Ceres

In 2009, Ceres and the Clean Economy Network Foundation (CENF) committed to launch an ambitious effort-titled 'We Can Lead'-to mobilize business and financial leaders to deliver credible economic messages related to climate and energy policy.
Working together, Ceres and CENF have made substantial progress, including aiding the passage of climate policy in the House by mobilizing 500 business and lead financial partners to deliver key messages to U.S. policymakers on the myriad economic benefits of reduced emissions and clean energy. Media platforms employed include radio, TV and newspaper ads, and the hosting of over 30 targeted events which resulted in 361 press hits in key states and 37 op-eds and newspaper articles.
