Washington, D.C. — In response to President Biden’s Executive Order on Climate-Related Financial Risk, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Tiernan Sittenfeld, SVP of Government Affairs:

“We commend President Biden and his team of climate champions throughout the administration for continuing to put communities first when it comes to combating the climate crisis. Guarding against the myriad financial and budgetary risks posed by climate change could not be more important as our country recovers from the pandemic and its economic fallout. Importantly, this new Executive Order from the President builds on the administration’s all-of-government approach toward a just and equitable clean energy future. The Biden-Harris administration is off to the strongest start of any presidential administration when it comes to climate change, and now it’s time to couple it with transformational legislation by enacting the American Jobs Plan into law this summer.”
