Business Council for Sustainable Energy

Business Council for Sustainable Energy The Business Council for Sustainable Energy: A coalition of the renewable energy, energy efficiency, & natural gas industries. The Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE) is a coalition of companies and trade associations from the energy efficiency, natural gas and renewable energy sectors; it also includes independent electric power producers, investor-owned utilities, public power, commercial end-users and project developers and service providers for environmental markets.

In 2012 the Council celebrated its 20th anniversary and marked two decades of advocating for policies at the state, national and international levels that increase the use of commercially-available clean energy technologies, products and services. Industry leaders from the energy efficiency, renewable energy and natural gas sectors came together in 1992 to form a coalition dedicated to creating a

Fact Sheet: A Year Advancing Environmental Justice | The White House

In an executive order released only one week after he took office, President Joe Biden promised that disadvantaged communities would see 40% of the total benefits of climate and infrastructure spending — an influx of capital that would go toward redressing past imbalances that have left marginalized communities disproportionately exposed to pollution and #ClimateChange.
