Climate change is real. It is the result of human activities. And it will impact present and future generations. Join HEC and partner organizations as we #ActOnClimate.
The world’s leading climate scientists and scientific organizations, including the National Academy of Sciences and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, assert that human activities are the primary cause for climate change.
HEC works diligently to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from all of the leading sources in Indiana, including power, industry, and agriculture.
Even with our best efforts, the global climate will continue to warm due to “locked-in” greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. In order to support all Hoosier communities, we must adapt to Indiana’s current climate impacts and prepare for the future.
HEC is the voice of the people for the environment in Indiana. Thank you to the Sustainable Superheroes, Wildlife Warriors and Planet Protectors HEC Green Businesses below who make our voice stronger. We encourage you to support the businesses who support HEC!
