FCNL's Carbon Pricing Principles

By itself, pricing carbon emissions cannot solve climate change. However, it is a powerful tool we must consider as part of our toolbox. As the national dialogue on carbon pricing advances, these principles guide FCNL’s advocacy.

Carbon Pricing as a Solution to Climate Change

FCNL believes that carbon pricing is one of many essential tools that Congress should use to address climate change and shift towards a clean energy economy.

While we have not endorsed any particular bill at this time, we are supportive overall of the efforts from both parties to advance carbon pricing legislation. We hope that the below resources will help our network advocate for just climate policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote equitable communities.
