CEOs of some of the largest corporations in the country are taking over some of President Biden’s early initiatives as commander-in-chief.
Hours after taking office Wednesday, Biden signed a series of executive orders to turn the tide on immigration, climate change, racial equity and the nation’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
Leading executives from Apple to Marriott, who are part of the Business Roundtable, will support Biden’s policies including a comprehensive immigration reform, coming under the Paris climate agreement and the World Health Organization (WHO) as well as a mandate that masks be worn on all federal properties.
Apple CEO Tim Cook is the new chair of the Corporate Roundtable Immigration Committee that will work on immigration reform.
Cook said Biden’s effort to pursue comprehensive immigration reform “reflects American values of justice, equity and dignity” and “will strengthen American communities and pathways to the opportunities this country has long promoted.”
|AAPL||THE APPLE COMPANY.||136.87||+4.84||+ 3.67%|
Johnson Controls CEO George Oliver is the new chair of the Committee on Energy and the Environment who will support efforts to join the international effort to combat climate change.
|JCI||JOHNSON CONTROLS INTERN||52.17||-0.23||-0.44%|
Earlier this year, the Business Roundtable issued policies to tackle climate change, which included implementing a market-based strategy with a “carbon price where possible and effective”.

Marriott International CEO Arne Sorenson is the chair of the Health and Retirement Committee, who will work on behalf of the Business Roundtable to help the United States re-engage with the World Health Organization.
|MAR||MARRIOTT INTERNATIONAL INC.||126.62||-0.11||-0.09%|
Sorenson said the Business Roundtable welcomes President Biden’s decision to re-engage with WHO, which will “improve the international response to the pandemic” and help the United States “respond better to future public health crises.”
Rich Lesser, CEO of Boston Consulting Group, is the chairman of the COVID-19 Task Force Business Roundtable.
Since April, the Business Roundtable has emphasized the need for consistent federal and state guidelines on safety measures, including face coverings. In July, the business roundtable called for mandatory facial coverings.
“Even as more Americans are able to get vaccinated, wearing masks and other public health measures remain critical to saving lives and livelihoods,” Lesser said.
