Aspen Skiing Company tells the Senate what’s up

Senators Barbara Boxer and John Kerry are proposing new legislation about climate change to the Senate today. Some surprising players have had a hand it in. One of them is Aspen Skiing Company. Known for their innovative environmental work, ASC is moving beyond greening their resorts to green up the government.   

“We’re involved on an almost daily basis on a national level,” said Matt Hamilton, ASC’s sustainability manager. The company is part of a lobbying group, Bicep, made up of businesses that are invested in controlling climate change. 

Hamilton said that Aspen Skiing Company is trying to help make big national changes as quickly as possible. “You only get an opportunity like this once,” he said. “If this closes without success we probably shot ourselves in the foot.”-Heather Hansman
