Building America's New Climate Economy
The coronavirus pandemic has severely impacted the United States’ economy at all levels -- national, state and local. As federal lawmakers develop economic recovery packages, they can build back better by investing in low-carbon infrastructure and policies that respond to the climate challenge.

Join World Resources Institute for a webinar with a diverse set of leaders exploring how states and businesses are making progress toward a low-carbon future and what policy interventions, corporate leadership, technology trends and other activities can accelerate this transition, while ensuring that workers aren’t left behind.

The webinar will feature a brief presentation on "America’s New Climate Economy: A Comprehensive Guide to the Economic Benefits of Climate Policy in the United States." Launching on July 28, the paper explains how low-carbon investments and policies would create jobs, provide widespread public health benefits and accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy.

- Ben Grumbles, Maryland Secretary of the Environment
