Business Community Climate Leadership Case Study

Life is not as we would have expected at this point in 2020, but the pace and promise of sustainability dialogue continues as vociferously this year as ever before. Through a variety of programs across the organization, the U.S. Chamber supports the business community's leadership on sustainability and promotes best practices and policies that enable the creative and innovative approaches businesses are taking to foster environmental progress and economic growth at home and abroad. 

In recognition of the critical role that climate action plays in our shared priorities, the Chamber compiled and released the Conquering Carbon: How Businesses are Leading the Charge on Climate Change profile series to demonstrate the business community’s leadership in the global climate change challenge. 

The Chamber Foundation is expanding on this with a new publication of compiled case studies on climate action from different sectors that digs deeper into specific examples of industry approaches, best practices, and lessons learned for the benefit of the broader business community.

Climate action requires accelerated progress now to reach 2030 targets. Inaction is not an option. 

We hope this compilation inspires you to support these and similar strategies being taken to tread a sustainable and resilient path forward. The moment for action is now.
