Providing support for achieving emission reductions and analysis on how leaders can achieve a stronger, cleaner economy
America’s energy system has become more productive, more independent and more flexible in recent years, creating new opportunities for a more equitable and prosperous economy powered by low carbon technologies.The decisions made by the U.S. administration, Congress, state and local leaders and business leaders will have great influence over the pace and fairness by which the energy transition creates American jobs, helps grow U.S. companies and whether the country can compete in the global clean energy race.
It is crucial that we continue to act ambitiously in taking steps to reduce carbon pollution from power plants, methane from natural gas systems and HFCs from refrigeration and cooling systems. WRI is well positioned to inform the debate as to what U.S. agencies can do under the law and what they need to do for the U.S. to meet its climate commitment.
WRI's U.S. Climate Initiative provides latest analysis, expert commentary and insights that offer practical steps for leaders at all levels of government in the United States to grow the economy, reduce emissions and strengthen communities. Our focus is on identifying pathways to achieving a stronger, cleaner economy that benefits all Americans.
