Principle #1

Establish science-based mandatory and enforceable emissions limits leading to economy-wide 100% net-zero emissions by 2050, with significant, measurable progress before 2030.

Principle #2

Establish state-wide, cost-effective investment in community resiliency (e.g., protecting wastewater treatment plants from rising sea levels) to protect against the effects of climate change and equitably share costs, benefits, and risks.

Principle #3

Maximize family-sustaining job growth through the creation and maintenance of good, well-paying union jobs and apprenticeship programs, and create defined career pathways for current workers in the fuel industry.

Principle #4

Prioritize solutions developed by underserved communities overburdened by pollution and follow the lead of frontline communities (e.g., low-income communities, senior Rhode Islanders, and Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) disproportionately affected by environmental injustice in the transition to a Green Economy.
