Current focus: Clean Tax Cuts:
applying Ronald Reagan-style tax cuts on decarbonizing products and services.
Our most promising proposal focuses on a type of Green Bond, called a Clean Asset Bond (CAB), as well as a Clean Asset Loan (CAL). Please read more about these initial ideas on the Proposal section. We continue to research the applicability of this concept, and will post updates on our concept when available.
We are encouraged by the strong interest in free market solutions to meeting current energy needs shown at events in Washington, DC and New York City during National Clean Energy Week, sponsored by CRES Forum.
The Clean Capitalist Coalition was formally launched on Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2018 in Washington, DC, as well as on Sept. 27, 2018 in New York City during the annual Clean Capitalist Leadership Council meeting. The Coalition brings together a wide array of policy groups and other experts to work more effectively in Washington.
Colleagues that include faculty and researchers at Columbia University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy, American Renewable Energy Institute, The Nature Conservancy, Arizona State University, the One Step In Foundation, and R Street Institute, among many others, have contributed valuable expertise and insight. Together we have explored several important sectors of the economy for potential application of Clean Tax Cuts or Clean Assets Bonds, including transportation, oil and gas, real estate, clean tech, agriculture and land use, and finance.
