BIO Submits Comments to USDA Highlighting Biotech’s Role in Tackling the Climate Crisis

The Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) is pleased to respond to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Request for Comments: Executive Order on Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad as USDA develops a Climate-Smart Agriculture and Forestry Approach.

BIO applauds the Administration and the Department for prioritizing the urgent need to address the climate crisis. As BIO outlined in its “100 Days of Innovation” Blueprint, our nation is at a critical juncture. The start of the new administration and new Congress presents a unique opportunity to come together to galvanize our nation’s scientific and entrepreneurial capacity and to mobilize new waves of homegrown innovation and American ingenuity to tackle the climate crisis, end the pandemic, and get more Americans back to work.

With science, we can return our Nation and the world to health and prosperity by taking bold and drastic action to address the climate crisis and reverse years of inequity and build a more just, sustainable, and resilient future.
