6 Ways President Biden Can Use Executive Action to Take on the Climate Crisis

In 2022, President Biden Must Mobilize Both Executive and Legislative Action for Climate, Jobs & Justice

Download our paper

President Joe Biden was elected on the most ambitious and comprehensive climate platform of any presidential candidate in American history. And in order to meet those climate goals—while creating millions of good jobs and achieving greater environmental justice in a prosperous clean energy economy—he must mobilize greater executive and legislative action. 

In this new paper, we outline 6 important ways that he can use executive action to mobilize the federal government on climate during his second year in office. 

6 Ways President Biden Can Use Executive Action to Take on the Climate Crisis

  1. Powering Towards 100% Clean Electricity
  2. Building Clean Vehicles & Transportation Infrastructure
  3. Cleaning up the Built Environment
  4. Leading the World in Clean Manufacturing
  5. Confronting Fossil Fuel Industry Pollution & Giveaways
  6. Promoting Climate-Smart Agriculture & Healthy Forests, Waterways & Oceans

In the first days of his administration, the president launched a “whole of government” agenda that’s aimed to tackle the climate crisis, create millions of good jobs, and build a more just, equitable and prosperous clean energy economy. While the administration made important progress throughout its first year, realizing that full vision requires greater progress in 2022. 

It is already clear how major climate investment legislation is critical to achieving President Biden’s climate commitments. However, such legislation by itself won’t be sufficient to meet his climate goals. These investments will also need to be complemented by robust executive action. 

President Biden must advance domestic action that will reduce US climate pollution. This is our moment for climate action. And this moment will not come again.
