CPBIS to Interact with Sloan Network on Climate Change

According to a recently released Sloan Foundation document, “Efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions may have at least as much impact on major U.S. industries over the next couple of decades as globalization has had over the last twenty years or so. Climate change itself may also have a substantial effect on industries.”

The Sloan Foundation Industry Study Centers network, of which CPBIS is a member, is “in a unique position to help U.S. industries start to study how they will be impacted by climate change and possible GHG reduction regulations and how they can most efficiently respond. To start this process, the network will convene a workshop on ‘U.S. Industry and Climate Change: Impacts, Policies, and Responses.’”
(For possible climate change legislative scenarios, see the white paper prepared for the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, posted on the CPBIS Web site at:

The workshop will be held April 4-5 in Berkeley California. CPBIS will be represented by Jacqueline McNutt, executive director, and George Weyerhaeuser, chairman of the CPBIS Board of Executives, both of whom will actively participate in the program. Other industries participating in the workshop include aluminum, electricity, food and motor vehicles.
