On the Pathway to 100% Clean Energy
A Project for Maine Businesses, by Maine Businesses.
Maine's hard-working business owners are rising to the challenge to achieve targets set in state law to reduce our own fossil fuel emissions by 45% by 2030, achieve carbon neutrality by 2045, and reach an 80% reduction by 2050.
"On The Pathway To 100% Clean Energy" is Maine's business community setting aside politics to take effective action together. The private-sector, nonprofit, and nonpartisan project is initiated by Maine business owners, managed by a volunteer project manager, overseen by a Steering Committee, and guided by an independent Advisory Board.
Advisory Board and Project Manager
Funding for the project comes from people who believe that we can bring together hundreds of owners of Maine's small and mid-sized businesses for the common good. By intelligently employing the capabilities of the private sector, we can quickly and cost-effectively build a carbon-neutral economy with successful and sustainable companies and farms leading the way.
Our generous sponsors and supporters know that every company and farm can operate successfully with 100% clean energy, if the owners make a clear commitment and work a plan. The aim is to inspire every business owner in Maine to commit to and then achieve a bold goal that is necessary, significant, and widely respected.
We encourage every Maine citizen to participate in this practical, high-impact project by encouraging business owners in their community to get on the pathway. A simple online registration, submitted by the business owner, is all it takes to get started.
