Keystone Heralds Collaborative Strategy in Support of U.S. Climate Strategy

KEYSTONE, CO, October 31, 2016 — The Keystone Policy Center, the leading organization working to foster collaborative solutions to public policy challenges, heralded the United States’ cooperative, cross-sector approach to developing its climate change strategy. Jonathan Pershing, U.S. special envoy for climate change and frequent guest speaker at the Keystone Energy Board, told the Atlantic Council last week that the United States has embraced this approach as it develops its climate change strategy — slated to be unveiled in detail next week at the 22nd Session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Marrakech, Morocco.

“We’re proud the United States has shown true leadership and dedication to collaboration in developing its decarbonization strategy,” said Christine Scanlan, President and CEO of the Keystone Policy Center. “This approach, which echoes Keystone’s mission and vision for collaborative policymaking, shows how enduring solutions emerge when leaders move past entrenched positions to reach common higher ground.”
