ACORE Applauds President Biden’s Day One Actions on Climate

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Following is a statement from Gregory Wetstone, President and CEO of the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE), regarding the climate actions President Biden is scheduled to sign later today:

“We commend President Biden’s commitment to move America beyond climate denial on his very first day in office, starting with rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement and initiating a wholesale review of the Trump Administration’s climate and clean energy rollbacks – including the Department of Labor’s misguided anti-ESG investing rule. The nation’s renewable sector looks forward to working with the new administration to accelerate the transition to a renewable energy economy and return the United States to a position of global leadership in the fight against climate change. Working together, we can deliver the clean energy future that Americans want and scientists say we need.”
