Mobilizing industry support and business leadership to advance climate policy and institute a price on carbon emissions
Climate change presents a significant threat to our livelihoods, and carbon pricing is widely viewed as the most effective and efficient way to address it. The nature of the threat, together with federal inaction, demands that Oregon demonstrate timely policy leadership now.
A Climate Focused Business Voice
We are Oregon’s only statewide business organization focused on passing carbon pricing policy in Oregon. Our mission is to provide a forum for Oregon industry leaders to collaborate in policy and business engagements aimed at promoting investment, job creation, competitiveness, and economic growth towards Oregon’s low carbon economy.
While Oregon has a legacy of serving as good stewards of the environment while ensuring a strong economy, there has been a significant void from the business community to engage in a proactive and comprehensive approach to addressing the risks from climate change. Oregon Business for Climate has filled that void, emerging as an influential and reasoned voice representing a diversity of businesses.
Our members have access to staff expertise, lobbying support, partner groups, policy briefs, industry-specific research, monthly member calls, and sponsored events.
