Oregon Business for Climate is a nonpartisan, nonprofit statewide organization focused on mobilizing industry support and business leadership to advance climate policy and institute a price on carbon emissions while strengthening Oregon’s economy. Oregon Business for Climate believes that, because of federal inaction, Oregon must demonstrate timely policy leadership at the state level.

Because of  strong leadership in 2018 in Salem, there is an inevitability about cap and invest legislation passing in the 2019 session. Oregon Business for Climate is focused on ensuring that the result is a thoughtful, responsible piece of legislation. As climate change is already dramatically impacting the wine industry, the voices of wine industry professionals have been critical as this policy discussion has evolved. Current membership includes A to Z Wineworks, Sokol Blosser, Willamette Valley Vineyards, Adelsheim Vineyard and Wildwood/Mahonia, along with 90+ other Oregon businesses.
