BICEP was founded on the belief that the energy and climate challenges facing the United States present a tremendous opportunity and a serious risk for U.S. businesses. BICEP’s goal is to work directly with key allies in the business community and with relevant policy-makers to seize this opportunity and remain competitive in the global transition to clean energy. We believe the U.S. should take immediate and bold actions to pass meaningful energy and climate legislation that is consistent with our core principles.
BICEP offers a forum for business engagement to advance climate and energy policies on the state, federal and international levels. BICEP educates its members on relevant policy and provides backgrounds, briefings, and updates. BICEP members are presented with a menu of engagement opportunities, including direct engagement with policy makers, working with the media, and attending events. BICEP will also engage on behalf of its members to advance policies that are consistent with its principles.
BICEP was founded in 2009 by 5 founding members and now includes over 30 companies. Its members are leading, innovative companies that have demonstrated a commitment to sustainable practices within their own operations and come together to advocate for systemic change.
