The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed many inequities within our society. As Vermont looks to rebuild our economy in the wake of this crisis, we have an opportunity to develop a new model for prosperity—one that puts climate resiliency, equity, and a low-carbon transition at the center of our recovery efforts.

This webinar from VBSR brought together businesses, and climate advocates from across Vermont to learn how our little state can prepare to meet the challenges of a warming world, promote environmental justice, and seize the economic and job-creating benefits that climate action presents. It included a presentation from the Energy Action Network on where Vermont stands on its emissions reduction goals and the economic benefits of decarbonization, as well as a facilitated Q&A session with leaders from VPIRG, VNRC, and Burton, on the latest climate action bills moving through Vermont’s legislature.
