Dear Ms. Coyle: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce (Chamber) submits the following comments in response to the Council on Environmental Quality’s (Council or CEQ) notice of availability and request for comments on the CEQ’s interim guidance document, “Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Sequestration Guidance” (Guidance). 
Combating climate change requires citizens, governments, and businesses to work together. The climate is changing, humans are contributing to these changes, and inaction is not an option. American businesses are already playing an essential role in addressing the threats posed by climate change, and the business community is an essential partner in the development of sound policies and technologies that protect and preserve our planet. Accordingly, the Chamber works to leverage innovation and the strength of American businesses to find durable solutions that improve our environment, grow our economy, and leave the world a better place for generations to come.
