BICEP Applauds Chairman Boxer for her Leadership in Release of Strong Climate Principles
Business for Innovative Climate & Energy Policy (BICEP) commends Chairman Boxer for her steadfast commitment to scientifically and economically sound climate change legislative principles. BICEP supports her call for a science-based, transparent and accountable market-based system that efficiently reduces carbon emissions with certain and enforceable short and long term targets.
The clean energy and energy efficiency measures that Chairman Boxer sets forth will spur substantial innovation and economic opportunities, while helping our nation stake out leadership in the emerging low-carbon global economy. The BICEP companies look forward to working with Chairman Boxer and the Committee on Environment & Public Works as well as the Obama Administration to pass meaningful legislation which will address the challenges presented by a warming planet, U.S. energy security and our troubled economy.
