Sierra Club Conservation Policies
Federal Tax Law
The Sierra Club favors those reforms in federal tax law that will encourage
environmentally sound action and discourage environmentally damaging action. The
Sierra Club will support proposals that utilize tax policy to further the achievement of
the Sierra Club's established environmental policies. As an example, the Club
strongly supports energy conservation and renewable energy tax credits until such time as
all tax subsidies for the energy sector have been removed.
Adopted by the Board of Directors, May 4-5, 1985
