Carbonfund.org Registers for American Businesses for Clean Energy
Thursday, 5 November 2009
Businesses want global warming solutions. Here at Carbonfund.org, we see that first hand every day with businesses from all over the nation coming to us to find new ways to reduce and offset their carbon footprint. That is why Carbonfund.org was pleased to learn about a new, broad based initiative that launched today – American Businesses for Clean Energy. The purpose of this new group is to create a platform to show the breadth, depth and diversity of support for clean energy and climate legislation among the American business community. As the nonprofit leader in carbon offsets and climate change solutions, Carbonfund.org has registered to join. The group includes Gap Inc. and other businesses around the country. “The House has done its part by passing comprehensive energy and climate legislation,” said Stephen Cowell, chairman and CEO of Conservation Services Group, which helped launch ABCE. “We urge the Senate and the President to do the same.” Their website is designed to empower any business regardless of size or sector to participate in the climate legislation debate. By joining the American Businesses for Clean Energy, businesses can show members of Congress, the media and others that there is strong support for strong climate legislation.
