- How the Clean Power Plan is structured
- How it is likely to be implemented at the state level, and
- What risks and opportunities this offers companies in terms of meeting their green power purchasing, sustainability and carbon reduction goals.
Voluntary corporate efforts have driven significant strides in integrating sustainability throughout companies’ operations, strategy and supply chain management, and will continue to be a critical pathway for innovation. But with today’s climate and resource challenges, the bar is now higher for companies that want to lead on sustainability. Moving from environmental progress today to full scale solutions tomorrow will require a new type of corporate leadership: a willingness to align corporate sustainability operations, strategy and policy. What we are calling the Business-Policy Nexus.
EDF’s new webinar series focuses on how businesses can and must take the next leadership step – helping to shape and support the smart regulatory and policy changes required to preserve the natural systems that people, communities and companies need to thrive. The first installment will focus on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s recently proposed Clean Power Plan, the first federal rule limiting carbon pollution from existing power plants—and why companies should make their voices heard as plans to implement the rule take shape.
