The State of Maine has set an ambitious goal of an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Approximately 84% of Maine’s economy is generated by the private sector. To achieve this ambitious goal, we’re going to need the participation and leadership of Maine’s business community.
The Maine Climate Table is hosting a series of on-line events this fall to explore the opportunities for climate mitigation and adaptation in Maine’s business sector. How might we finance climate action in Maine? Will we have the workforce to implement the changes needed? How are our natural resource sectors—forestry, fishing, and agriculture—preparing for climate change? What are some Maine businesses doing now to slow climate change?
These are just some of the questions that our on-line panelists will be addressing. Adam Lee of Lee Auto Malls, well-known Maine business leader and climate advocate, will kick off our series with a keynote on Thursday, September 24th.

Are Environmental Regulations a Help or Hindrance in Achieving Climate Change Goals
All over the country, states are passing aggressive new climate change goals aimed at driving a transition to clean energy. However, fifty years’ worth of state and federal regulations and public expectations may not be conducive to such aggressive timelines. Our panel of experts will explore and give examples where the process may not allow us to hit the targets, in an informal, facilitated discussion.
