BICEP Companies Commit to Climate Action

BICEP was founded on the belief that the energy and climate challenges facing the United States present vast opportunities, along with urgent risks, for U.S. businesses. Learn more about our work.

BICEP was founded on the belief that the energy and climate challenges facing the United States present vast opportunities, along with urgent risks, for U.S. businesses. We are driven by principles that:

  • Promote Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
  • Increase Investment in a Clean Energy Economy
  • Support Climate Change Adaptation, Technology Transfer and Forest Preservation

Our members are among the 365+ businesses and investors who support the Clean Power Plan. What’s more – their support is paralleled by the dozens of states that are developing plans to diversify their energy portfolios, all while boosting their attractiveness to companies and employees who embrace clean energy solutions.

The merits of the Clean Power Plan were recently challenged by a Supreme Court stay, however business and investor leaders plan to continue the path toward a clean energy economy. Read their statements.

The support doesn't stop there. During the UNFCCC Climate talks in Paris, BICEP members and colleagues joined together at the U.S. Center to discuss how corporate action on climate policy can lead to real change. Moderated by Ceres President Mindy Lubber, panelists included executives from Dignity Health, VF Corporation, Mars Incorporated, Facebook, and CalSTRS. The discussion came on the heels of the White House’s American Business Act on Climate Pledge, signed by 154 companies across the U.S. representing more than $4.2 trillion in annual revenue.

We believe the clean energy economy is inevitable and irreversible, but there’s more to be done. Get involved by joining BICEP and by signing our Climate Declaration.
