CALC leading the charge against the rising flood levels with Boston Businesses Acting on Rising Seas

Banner-Image-BARS

As CALC looks forward, we see a future for Massachusetts and our small businesses impacted by rising seas. For this reason, we are joining our partners at the American Sustainable Business Council to spearhead the project Boston Businesses Acting on Rising Seas. This project follows from ASBC’s work with South Carolina Businesses Acting on Rising Seas (SCBARS). This project will engage Massachusetts’ coastal businesses and municipalities to demonstrate the ultimate physical and economic consequences of climate change and rising sea levels, as articulated in a recent report from The Boston Harbor Association. The businesses will publicly display where sea level rise will reach by the year 2050 in a 100-year flood on the interior and exterior of their buildings. Through their engagement, businesses will take a step towards engaging the in advocacy necessary to mitigate and adapt to the change the science shows is coming. They will begin by sparking the conversations in their communities, and hopefully join CALC in taking action and advocating for robust policy at the municipal and state levels.
