Our vision is a clean economy by 2050. The Coalition has agreed to six policy pillars – what we see as the tenets of a clean economy – each with its own goals and initiatives:
A robust economy is necessary to move our state forward. We support efforts and policies that ensure households’ health, jobs, and choices for tomorrow are better than they are today.
We put racial and economic justice at the center of our work because we know there are “can’t wait” communities that are already experiencing the impacts of climate change. We aim to be the bridge between the lived experiences of climate and energy consequences and the arenas where policy decisions are made.
We act to shape and support policies that support a 100% carbon-free state by 2050. We support energy freedom through increased access to clean power, allowing new sources of clean and renewable power generation to be a part of our state’s clean economy future.
Home and building repair
We advocate and act for policies to achieve 100% zero carbon new residential and commercial buildings by 2030 and to facilitate reduction of building sector energy use by 50% by 2030. We will work to phase out use of natural gas in existing homes and businesses, to prioritize retrofitting and weatherization, and to reduce energy burden on households who can least afford it.
Wisconsin’s economy relies on thriving landscapes that support productive agriculture, resilient cities, and valued natural areas. We will advocate for natural climate solutions that protect land and water, while providing economic growth to both rural and urban communities.
We work with partners across all sectors to ease the road for the transition to electric and low-carbon transportation. We advocate and act to make the transition to electric vehicles cost effective, easy and equitable, with a goal of over 50% of new car sales being electric by 2030.
