WASHINGTON – Coalition for Green Capital today celebrated the inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as President and Vice President and welcomed their focus on winning the battle against climate change and achieving full employment by fall 2022.
As Senator, Harris cosponsored the National Climate Bank Act, and President Biden in July endorsed “innovative financing mechanisms that leverage private sector dollars to maximize investment in the clean energy revolution.” CGC supports the Clean Energy and Sustainability Accelerator, a bill passed twice by the House of Representatives in 2020.
“At a moment when we face tremendous challenges as a country, we’re proud to congratulate President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris” said Reed Hundt, founder and CEO of the Coalition for Green Capital. “Throughout the campaign, President Biden and Vice-President Harris made clear that they are committed to tackling climate change, creating good jobs and building a country that prioritizes equity and justice.”
“A clean energy accelerator is the kind of tool that has strong support from the Biden White House and from members of congress on both sides of the aisle,” said Jeffrey Schub, executive director of the Coalition for Green Capital. “We’re excited to continue our work to unleash the power of a nationwide green bank to create jobs and combat climate change.”
