Webinar: Budget Reconciliation, Climate and You


When: Wednesday, September 15, 2021 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM MDT Speakers: Rich Harper, Director of Government Affairs, Outdoor Industry Association Amy Horton, Senior Director of Sustainable Business Innovation, Outdoor Industry Association As Outdoor Climate Policy Priorities Take Center Stage, Your Business Voice Matters We know the outdoor industry is poised to become the first climate positive industry by 2030, but we also know that equally ambitious policy changes are required to reverse the worst impacts of climate change and protect our precious natural resources. The outdoor business community has a unique opportunity – and an obligation to our employees and consumers – to make our voices heard. Join this special member-only webinar to learn more about this once-in-a-generation opportunity to pass significant climate legislation with far-reaching impacts for the health of our planet, people, and our industry. New scientific data confirms virtually no part of the planet will be spared from the negative impacts of climate change, and this all comes at time in our history when more Americans are getting outside than ever before. Major legislation currently being considered by Congress promises historic efforts to tackle climate change, including a host of priorities that matter to outdoor businesses and the industry at large. The legislation – one of the cornerstones of President Biden’s domestic agenda – is being pursued through a complex legislative tool known as “budget reconciliation.” It has the potential to accelerate the nation’s transition to renewable energy, create new jobs in restoration and climate resilience through a Civilian Climate Corps, support electric vehicle production, and make unprecedented investments in environmental justice.
