For media inquiries, please contact Cynthia Meyer at cmeyer@cochamber.com.

DENVER – The Colorado Chamber of Commerce today released the following statement regarding the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Reduction Roadmap recently announced by the Governor’s Office:

“As the statewide chamber of commerce representing hundreds of businesses of all sizes across Colorado, we support the goal of cleaner air and affordable emissions reduction strategies. We remain concerned, however, with efforts that could compromise the reliability of our electric grid and affordability for consumers, particularly with the roadmap’s heavy focus on electrification. Economic and environmental progress is best achieved when emissions reduction goals are realistic, achievable and market-driven. While this roadmap is well-intended, we urge our elected leaders and regulators to fully consider the costs of implementing such measures, particularly under the current economic circumstances.”

The Colorado Chamber provided feedback to the Colorado Energy Office and Department of Public Health and Environment on the previous draft Greenhouse Gas Roadmap in November 2020, which can be viewed here.
