Washington, DC – The following is a statement from Sasha Mackler, director of the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Energy Project:
“The Bipartisan Policy Center is encouraged by the renewed leadership from the U.S. regarding international climate engagement. Achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 is necessary and requires both a global commitment along with a concerted effort to build out U.S. clean energy infrastructure in the near term.
“Today’s 2030 target put forward by the Biden administration is extremely ambitious. Its success will require bipartisan support from Congress and a new collaborative engagement between the public and private sectors. A serious national commitment to this agenda will unlock a new era of investment, with significant growth in new jobs and enhanced competitiveness of American companies, and will produce a prolonged era of prosperity for the U.S.
“BPC looks forward to supporting this work with the administration and members of Congress from both parties.”
