US business group to advocate for policies and actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

At Rio+20 last month the (US) Business Council for Sustainable Energy committed itself to advocate for policies and actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, thus joining a small but growing group of US businesses that are urging governments to take action on climate change.

The BCSE was established in 1992. Current membership consists of about 50 companies and associations. Among the better known members are Walmart Stores, Inc., PG&E Corporation, Knauf Insulation, Johnson Controls, Inc, Intel Corporation, and Ingersoll Rand.

The US BCSE is one of four founding members of the International Council for Sustainable Energy, with others coming from Europe, the UK, and Australia. There is no business council for sustainable energy in Canada.
