Grove Collaborative Urges Swift Passage of Legislation to Address Climate Crisis
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Grove Collaborative, a leading sustainable consumer products company, recently signed a letter from the American Sustainable Business Council urging Congress to immediately pass President Biden’s Build Back Better Agenda into law. With the climate crisis currently devastating the livelihoods and wellbeing of hundreds of millions of Americans, Grove endorses the climate provisions within Build Back Better, and supports the measures necessary to meet those provisions.
“Put simply, there is no other future and the cost of inaction is truly unaffordable,” said Stuart Landesberg, Co-Founder and CEO of Grove Collaborative. “As evidenced by our status as a B Corp and a CarbonNeutral® Certified Company, Grove exists to provide sustainable alternatives to conventional home essentials. We believe that business must be a positive force for human and environmental health, and we urgently need leadership and decisive action through legislation, specifically the Build Back Better Act. This is the opportunity of a lifetime to make meaningful progress on climate legislation, and a moment that will define our generation in shaping our future on this planet. Decisive, science-based legislation is critical to align businesses on a path towards a sustainable future.”
Jeffrey Hollender, co-founder and CEO of the American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC), said, “The hundreds of companies which signed on are seriously concerned about climate change and its impact on American businesses and recognize the necessity and urgency of this bill. With it will come the investments needed to build back better, and it includes adequate and appropriate means to fund it as proposed. It’s absurd that any pro-business group which purports to represent the interests of American businesses would not be unequivocally supportive unless they were more concerned with their own short-term gains than the survival of our planet and future generations.”
