Our Work: Businesses for a Clean Economy

About B4CE

Businesses for a Clean Economy (B4CE) Initiative was formed in 2011 by The Carbon Markets Investors Association, the Clean Energy Council, the Climate Institute, the Investor Group on Climate Change and the WWF. SBA became the Secretariat for the B4CE initiative in 2012.

Role and expected outcomes

The objectives of the B4CE initiative are to:

  • harness the business perspective on the role of a price on carbon pollution to stimulate our economy, benefit our communities, and preserve our environment
  • assemble a unified business voice in support of a price on carbon pollution
  • communicate shared positive views on the role a price on carbon plays to build our national economy so it supports business growth as well drive economy wide innovation and skilled jobs
  • inform business and the community, utilizing empirical data and research, of the impacts of a price on carbon including the benefits to Australian business
