This week, Ceres brought leading California businesses to discuss climate and water policy with key state policymakers in Sacramento.

Company representatives from KB Home, Dignity Health, Driscoll’s, and Jackson Family Wines joined Ceres staff in California’s capitol to make the business case for strong climate and water policies in the state. Companies reiterated their support of California’s successful landmark climate law, AB 32, and advocated in favor of extending the program beyond its 2020 expiration date. They also introduced legislators to Ceres’ new water-focused campaign Connect the Drops, which outlines the business voice in favor of resilient water solutions in the face of unprecedented drought.

Highlights of the trip included meeting with Senate president pro tempore Kevin de León as well as with Governor Jerry Brown’s key environmental advisor.
