The Biden Administration’s Climate Agenda

May 18, 2021
12:00 PM - 12:45 PM

During last month’s Leaders Summit on Climate, President Biden signaled the United States’ resolve to find solutions to climate change. The Administration’s new target -- the “Nationally Determined Contribution” (NDC) -- calls for a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 50-52% from 2005 levels by 2030. What measures will the Administration prioritize to deliver these results? Can it secure bipartisan support for related infrastructure investments? How will Washington encourage large-scale deployment of zero-carbon energy and cushion the impact on workers in legacy industries?

Join the Center on Global Energy Policy at the 7th Annual Columbia Global Energy Summit as we welcome Gina McCarthy, National Climate Advisor at the White House, to discuss the Biden Administration’s climate agenda in a conversation moderated by Jason Bordoff, Co-Founding Dean, Climate School, Columbia University; Founding Director, Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia SIPA; and Professor of Professional Practice in International and Public Affairs, Columbia University.
