About Us ::

The Climate Leadership Council represents the broadest climate coalition in U.S. history. It promotes a bipartisan carbon dividends framework as the most politically-viable, equitable and pro-business climate solution . The Council and its Founding Members believe that America needs a consensus climate solution that bridges partisan divides, strengthens our economy and protects our shared environment. That is why our diverse coalition of 22 leading companies, four major environmental organizations and opinion leaders from across the political spectrum have come together to develop and promote a bipartisan climate solution based on carbon dividends.

Slide3:

The Founding Members of the Climate Leadership Council believe that America needs a consensus climate solution that bridges partisan divides, strengthens our economy and protects our shared environment. The Council’s carbon dividends solution embodies the conservative principles of free markets and limited government. It also offers an equitable, popular and politically-viable way forward, paving the way for a much-needed bipartisan climate breakthrough. THE CONSENSUS CLIMATE SOLUTION Our carbon dividends program is based on four interdependent pillars : 1. A gradually rising and revenue-neutral carbon tax; 2. Carbon dividend payments to all Americans, funded by 100% of the revenue; 3. The rollback of carbon regulations that are no longer necessary; and 4. Border carbon adjustments to level the playing field and promote American competitiveness .
