What You Need to Know

Since 2005, manufacturers have lowered their GHG emissions by more than 10 percent, while our value added to the economy grew by 19 percent.

The Administration’s Clean Power Plan threatens manufacturers’ competitiveness by limiting energy options and increasing costs.

A better approach would be to support a true “all-of-the-above” energy strategy and allow manufacturers the flexibility to continue unlocking solutions for a sustainable economy and environment.

Manufacturers: Let Us Be the Solution

“This regulation will be exceptionally difficult for manufacturers to meet and will increase energy prices and threaten electric reliability. Manufacturers are committed to being responsible stewards of our environment, leading the way in that effort, and we are disappointed the Obama Administration has chosen to pursue this path.

Manufacturers are already building more efficient power plants, factories, cars and appliances, all of which are leading to lower emissions. We need policies that foster continued innovation, encourage new investments and allow manufacturers to remain competitive—not ones that punish and penalize. This regulation and the President’s Climate Regulatory Action Plan are not the answer. We will keep all options on the table, including litigation, to protect manufacturers’ ability to compete in the global marketplace.”
