Business Leaders to Senators: Please Support the Green New Deal Offers Historic Business Opportunities
Washington, DC – Today, the leading policy advocacy group for responsible businesses sent a letter to senators, urging them to support the Green New Deal as an historic business opportunity. The letter was endorsed by more than 250 businesses and business organizations, with more signing every day. The letter said in part:
“As responsible business leaders and investors in industries across America, we support the Green New Deal. By aligning with its brave vision and reality-based goals, American innovation can bring to scale long-overdue economic, environmental, and social benefits. We can create broad opportunity, rebuild our deteriorated infrastructure, and combat the clear and present danger of climate change. At its core, the Green New Deal offers a policy direction that will result in better business results for all stakeholders and a more vibrant and resilient economy.”
The American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC), which represents more than 250,000 businesses through its member network, was the first business group to endorse the Green New Deal. It has launched a business sign-on statement for businesses to show their support for the resolution. It may be found here: http://asbcouncil.org/action-center/campaigns/support-green-new-deal
