Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Susan Collins recently joined the Climate Solutions Caucus along with three other Senators. The caucus brings together an equal number of Republicans and Democrats to craft and advance bipartisan solutions to address our changing climate.
“Climate change has serious implications for the livelihoods of many people across my state, including fishermen, farmers, and those who are employed in our forest products industry,” said Senator Collins. “I have long worked to protect our environment by advancing bipartisan legislation to reduce pollutants, promote clean energy, and increase conservation. By encouraging innovative, bipartisan strategies, the Climate Solutions Caucus will help preserve our nation’s natural resources for future generations.”
The caucus is now made up of twelve Senators: six Republicans and six Democrats.
The Senate Climate Solutions Caucus promotes bipartisan discussion about climate policy and advocates for Congress to play a central role in addressing the challenge. Since launching in late 2019, the caucus has held regular meetings with members and staff, including with Microsoft founder Bill Gates and with CEOs who are members of the CEO Climate Dialogue. In the coming weeks, the caucus will hold meetings with executives from Fortune 500 companies who are members of the Climate Leadership Council, representatives from the Global CCS Institute, member companies of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, ambassadors, and leaders from a variety of faith traditions to discuss their concerns and priorities for federal climate policy and opportunities for collaboration.
