Mr. Biden “believes the Green New Deal is a crucial framework for meeting the climate challenges we face.” He promises to “sign a series of new executive orders with unprecedented reach that go well beyond the Obama-Biden Administration platform” related to climate concerns. His Clean Energy and Environmental Justice plan pledges every dollar spent on infrastructure “will be used to prevent, reduce, and withstand a changing climate;” commits that every federal infrastructure investment should reduce climate pollution and would require any federal permitting decision to consider the effects of greenhouse gas emissions and climate change; require public companies to disclose climate risks and the greenhouse gas emissions in their operations and supply chains; establish a new federal agency focused on climate and tasked with achieving 100% clean energy goals across the economy including the building of zero net energy buildings and decarbonizing construction materials; and calls for an enforcement mechanism for carbon pollution.
