Statement by Lisa Woll in Support of EPA’s Clean Power Plan in Wake of Supreme Court Ruling
US SIF dismayed by Supreme Court's decision to temporarily stay implementation of the Clean Power Plan.
US SIF is dismayed by the US Supreme Court's decision to temporarily stay implementation of the Clean Power Plan. As the US membership association for professionals, firms, institutions and organizations engaged in sustainable, responsible and impact investing, we support the Clean Power Plan because it will help unleash investment in clean energy sources, drive innovation, protect public health, benefit US consumers and bolster international efforts to curb climate change. While we are confident that the courts will uphold the rule, any undue delay in its implementation risks further buildup of dangerous greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere and introduces uncertainty to the investors who seek to finance America's clean energy future.
