Top business executives from IKEA, JLL, Mars Inc., Sprint and VF Corp. met with members of the Congressional Bicameral Task Force on Climate Change to discuss climate-related impacts on their companies, actions they are taking to reduce their companies’ carbon footprints, and the urgency for stronger policy action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support clean energy choices.

Among the topics discussed, the business executives specifically called on Congress to pass a tax extenders package that would renew expired tax credits for clean energy and energy efficiency for two years. They also urged passage of the Master Limited Partnership (MLP) Parity Act, which calls for extending the popular MLP finance mechanism to renewable energy, to level the playing field with fossil fuel sources.
