Statement on Copenhagen Accord from John W. Rowe, Exelon Chairman and CEO

We congratulate the President, Secretary Clinton, and the rest of the Administration on a successful conclusion at Copenhagen.

 

 CHICAGO (Dec. 21, 2009) -We congratulate the President, Secretary Clinton, and the rest of the Administration on a successful conclusion at Copenhagen. We are pleased that the five major emitting countries - the United States, China, India, South Africa and Brazil - have agreed to take the first step by voluntarily agreeing to limit their greenhouse gas emissions. We recognize that the Copenhagen Accord is only a first step, but the journey is long and we must begin. We look forward to working with the Administration and the Congress - especially the Senate - to secure passage of legislation next year that will make the promise of Copenhagen a reality for the United States.
