As Congress considers a potential infrastructure package, U.S. businesses and investors are calling on lawmakers to:
Build back better, seeking to build a more just and resilient economy — that addresses the urgent threat of climate change
Ensure that investments in infrastructure prioritize emissions reductions, good-paying clean energy jobs, and environmental justice to secure a sustainable future.
Enact policies to mitigate climate risk and put the U.S. on a path to reach the 50-52% emissions by 2030 commitment the Biden administration has made and net-zero emissions by 2050.

Proud of @Salesforce for joining 300+ companies for #LEADonClimate2020. Business voices must be unified and we need bold action from Congress to pass climate-smart economic policies that will enable us to #BuildBackBetter and put the U.S. on a 1.5 degree pathway.
