Storify: Who Supports Putting a Price on Carbon?

Climate Change Group's picture

Forward-thinking leaders from across business and government are speaking out in support of a price on carbon to lower climate-damaging emissions and encourage clean-energy innovation. Many work within carbon pricing systems found in more than 60 countries, cities, states, provinces, and regions – including seven local carbon markets in China – and they see positive effects in places such as British Columbia.

Businesses today understand that they must assess their supply chains for climate risk. A formal price on carbon provides market certainty for better decision-making and climate-smart investments for the future. That's why more than 250 corporate leaders, including Unilever, Ernst & Young, GDF Suez, Swiss Re, Statkraft, and Vattenfall, have expressed their support for pricing carbon through the Putting a Price on Carbon statement, and the list is growing.
