Leading on the Environment

We owe it to future generations to look at every policy proposal through the lens of climate change. It is too late to take small steps to protect our clean energy economy and our coastal communities from the threats of federal inaction and rising tides. Our state must continue to lead and set an example for the rest of the nation.

Massachusetts is home to some of the most innovative brands in the world so we will work with businesses and scientists to foster the creation of new clean energy technologies. We’ll also collaborate with city and town governments to determine smart environmental changes on the local level that will help offset our transportation and housing concerns.

Our state will continue its proactive and evidence-based approach, working with colleagues across the country to set national standards that fill voids left by the federal administration’s wrongheaded rollbacks of necessary environmental standards.
