BCSE Statement on U.S. Withdrawal from Paris Agreement
Washington, DC – The president of the Business Council for Sustainable Energy, Lisa Jacobson, issued the following statement:
“Today’s action by the United States government to formally begin the withdrawal process from the Paris Agreement is not a surprise but is nonetheless disappointing. The Business Council for Sustainable Energy remains committed to working with other sub-national actors and governments to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement. A multilateral approach to the global challenge of climate change is the most equitable and efficient way forward and sends an important signal to global markets to accelerate the deployment of clean energy.”
