Commonweath Climate Leadership Summit a Great Success!

On January 7th, ELM hosted the Commonwealth Climate Leadership Summit. The event was part of the Global Warming Solutions Project, a year-long climate initiative supported by the Barr Foundation. More than 70 invitees convened at Suffolk University Law School for a day of collaboration and brainstorming about strategies related to energy efficiency, transportation, planning, and going coal-free.

The day began with opening remarks by Secretary of Energy & Environmental Affairs Rick Sullivan and an overview of the Massachusetts Clean Energy and Climate Plan, provided by Assistant Secretary David Cash. A rousing address was provided by Doug Foy, founder and CEO of Serrafix. The rest of the day was rounded out by breakout sessions for each of the subject areas. The input provided by attendees will help shape the focus of the Global Warming Solutions Project going forward, including draft legislation that will be filed by week's end.

The Summit was a tremendous success and provided a great start to future collaboration. We look forward to building on this success!
