Washington D.C. - January 20, 2021 – The American Clean Power Association (ACP) released the following statement today after President Biden committed the U.S. to rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement.
“Economic recovery and combating climate change go hand in hand, and President Biden has made these critical issues some of his top priorities upon taking office. Climate change is a global threat that requires international collaboration to address, and American Clean Power applauds the Biden-Harris Administration for re-asserting America’s place in the Paris Agreement. For the world to overcome this challenge, our country must do more than simply play a part; we must lead. America’s clean energy industries stand ready to invest in U.S. communities and the U.S. workforce as we work together to achieve a more prosperous and lower-carbon future.” – Heather Zichal, CEO of the American Clean Power Association (ACP)
