Business Organization Supporting Clean Energy Growing Rapidly
After starting with just 19 members, the group American Businesses for Clean Energy has expanded to include over 800 businesses in just six weeks.
The ABCE is a coalition of businesses that support Congressional enactment of clean energy and climate legislation that will significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The organization includes large companies such as Gap Inc and New York Power Authority.
“The rapid increase in business flocking to ABCE sends a strong signal to Congress of the strong support for meaningful and effective legislation that will drive clean technology innovation, create jobs, and address the threat of global climate change,” ABCE spokesperson Christopher Van Atten said in a statement.
