American Climate Leadership Summit Recommendations Report Now Available
Climate leadership can come from anywhere, and it takes many forms. On September 14-15, over 200 CEO-level leaders and experts from business, health, faith, higher education, communities, government, culture, philanthropy, and climate gathered in Washington, D.C. for the American Climate Leadership Summit. Over two days filled with inspiring speeches, panel discussions, working groups, and strategy sessions, they explored the best ways to magnify their impact, enable collaboration, and accelerate climate solutions in America.
The insights and findings from the Summit have been consolidated into a new report, which features excerpts from the various speeches and panels, as well as specific, actionable proposals that arose from the working sessions.
