Clean Jumpstart 2021

A Roadmap for Realizing President Biden’s $2 Trillion Clean Energy & Infrastructure Investment Vision

Download the manual now.

President Biden and Vice President Harris campaigned and won on a bold Build Back Better plan that called for a $2 trillion investment in “modern, sustainable infrastructure and an equitable clean energy economy.” Clean Jumpstart 2021 is a manual for how Congress can realize President Biden’s vision.

The report details $2.3 trillion in investments—in 39 different action steps— that will deliver on climate, jobs, and justice. Federal lawmakers should seize this opportunity. 

Clean Jumpstart 2021 details 39 action steps—representing $2.3 trillion in federal investments—that Congress must take immediately to deliver economic recovery, climate action, good jobs, and justice.

In order to build a just and sustainable clean energy economy, the investments in Clean Jumpstart 2021 must be made equitably, in line with President Biden’s commitment to direct 40% of clean economy investments toward Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) and low-income communities that have suffered a legacy of cumulative impacts from environmental racism and economic exclusion. These investments must also be accompanied by labor standards that ensure high-quality, family wage jobs for those building the clean energy economy.

Bold reinvestment in clean energy and infrastructure—alongside enforceable sector-specific 100% clean energy standards, with a commitment to justice throughout—can help jumpstart our economic recovery, create millions of good-paying union jobs, and ensure U.S. leadership in tackling the climate crisis. These investments must be the next item on Congress’s agenda.
