Press Call to Discuss U.S. and Global Implications of the Inflation Reduction Act

Posted by Brad Johnson Mon, 08 Aug 2022 15:00:00 GMT

The U.S. Senate is poised to pass the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), a major landmark for American efforts to address the climate crisis that would be the most significant climate legislation in U.S. history and get the country within striking distance of its 2030 emissions reduction target.

If passed, the package of climate and clean energy investments will have a tremendous impact on innovation and cost reductions for a whole set of clean-energy solutions. The investments would help accelerate the U.S. transition to a clean energy economy and offer Americans a plethora of savings, health and economic benefits. The bill will also be critical in making progress toward the nation’s climate goal and show other countries that the U.S. is still a leader in the fight against climate change.

Join us for a press briefing on August 8, 20222 ET to help distill some of the major takeaways of the IRA, what it means for the U.S. ambitions to achieve its 2030 emissions reduction target, and how it may affect the global climate policy debate in the months ahead.
