February 25, 2021

The Biotechnology Innovation Organization is pleased to submit a statement for the record to the United States House of Representatives Committee on Agriculture hearing entitled, "Climate Change and the U.S. Agriculture and Forestry Sectors."

BIO applauds the Committee for putting its immediate focus on the climate crisis. As we outline in our attached "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, 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.

BIO is committed to working with the Committee, Congress, and the Administration to address the climate crisis. We urge you to support policy that advances pioneering technology breakthroughs. 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.
