California Companies Call Climate Change ‘Economic Opportunity’
California-based businesses that include Apple, SolarCity, San Diego International Airport, Sungevity, and Sapphire Energy signed a Climate Declaration, a call to action that urges federal and state policymakers to seize the economic opportunity of addressing climate change.
The Business for Innovative Climate & Energy Policy (BICEP) was launched last year by Ceres. Its business network has more than 750 signatories nationwide, and 140 in California, including General Motors, Unilever, Gap Inc., and eBay Inc.
“As the world’s 8th largest economy, California is a champion of clean energy progress and innovation,” states the declaration. “Thanks in part to its smart energy policies including its landmark climate law, AB32, California has been a global leader in job creation, clean energy investments and GDP growth.”
Ceres said the California companies that have signed the Climate Declaration see the financial upside of tackling climate change today, both for their own bottom lines and the overall economy.
