We are working to empower companies in our network to engage with your members of Congress to advocate for a climate-smart COVID recovery. Through this network, we'll be working to activate companies to independently and collectively advocate by:
- Training interested companies on best practices in climate policy advocacy, so you feel ready to go out and engage with lawmakers;
- Providing companies with resources, tools, and an activated network to streamline their advocacy and make it easier and more accessible
- Connecting companies to advocacy opportunities at the state and federal level through a broad network of partners
We encourage you to contact us to get involved or share updates by emailing [email protected].

On April 24th we hosted a first-of-its-kind meeting for CC committed companies to learn about a call for action from our partner Ceres. We heard from Anne Kelly at Ceres and Nancy Hirshberg about the opportunity for companies to participate in LEAD Days May 12th and 13th. We also heard from Bill McKibben who shared a special message on the crucial role businesses can play in advocating for climate forward policy. Watch the recording and download the slides here.
