Energy News recently profiled Eric Goplerud, founder and board chair of Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions (FACS). Based in Virginia, the group’s latest initiative is Fairfax to Zero, which provides a blueprint for emissions neutrality in Fairfax County by at least 2050. Having built a membership of 2,400 in its short 8-year existence, FACS is poised to make a big impact on climate policy both regionally and nationally. Congratulations to Eric and the FACS team!
Eric is a good friend of the Parliament. FACS presented a program at our 2018 Toronto convening entitled ‘Successful Local Interfaith Climate Advocacy in Maryland and Virginia’. Parliament’s Climate Action Task Force looks forward to a continued relationship with FACS through our Climate Commitments Project.
