9 June 2017, Munich, German / New York / Washington DC – Socialprenuer Tey Por Yee (Larry) together with Gomif Partners, Engaging with Congress on Energy & Climate Change in wake of Paris accord exit as part of the Gomif Partners’ Socialpreneurship corporate social responsibility (CSR) program awareness.
Congress makes big decisions that affect everyone. Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) has served as a trusted source of powerful stories and benefits of clean energy and climate action. Gomif Partners’ contribution enable the small group to work with Congress (both sides of the aisle) to develop win-win policy solutions that rouse economic, national security, public health, and environmental benefits. Delivering Congressmen to have access to compelling information to move ahead on clean energy and policy solutions is crucial as part of global sustainability initiative.
Larry demonstrated in the Accelerator17 2.0 German Cyber Workshop how to participate in the program over the Internet.
According to Chicago Tribune, Tesla founder and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, left, said he is quitting President Donald Trump’s business advisory councils after Trump announced the United States would exit the Paris climate agreement.
Efforts by Corporate America to influence Trump on the agreement to go back at least to shortly after the election, when hundreds of large and small companies, ranging from Starbucks to Monsanto, signed a letter in support of the Paris climate agreement. “Failure to build a low-carbon economy puts American prosperity at risk,” the letter said, calling the Paris climate agreement a “historic opportunity to tackle climate change.”
National policy supporting clean, renewable energy, will lead to less burning of dirty carbon-based fuels, saving lives and reducing the already evident impacts of climate change.
EESI organises well-regarded briefings on Capitol Hill to share compelling speakers and stories about moving ahead on key energy and climate change issues. The briefings explain the many impacts of climatic shifts already here, highlighting the devastating impacts on people, especially the lower income group of the society. Gomif Partners contribution bring forward policy solutions for resilient communities, based on clean energy. EESI is highly respected within Congress for providing compelling stories and timely facts.
Climate change affects every living thing on the planet. The US Congress plays a pivotal role in the effectiveness of the global response to climate change. Policies that reduce emissions, improve the quality of the air we breathe and water we drink, or move us to clean renewable energy, will save uncountable people from famine, disease, flooding, and fire. Hurricane Matthew, just one extreme event, was responsible for at least 49 deaths and $15 billion in damages in the US alone.
