The Rural Investment to Protect our Environment (RIPE) Roadmap is a stakeholder engagement initiative aimed at advancing bipartisan policy to support environmental stewardship and profit opportunities for farmers. It provides a policy outline for stakeholders to discuss that would enable investment in rural communities by providing profit-oriented payments to farmers and fishermen for their stewardship of our shared air, water, soil, and fishing resources. The revenue would come from a pollution fee charged on the greenhouse gas pollution emitted by the energy sectors.
