Environment

The Chamber strongly supports continued environmental improvements, including sensible approaches to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

We believe that economic growth and environmental progress are not mutually exclusive goals.

In fact, the United States is the only major country that has actually and substantially reduced its C02 emissions while continuing to grow our economy.

To make further progress, we should be guided by what has already worked: gains in efficiency, new technologies, and the increased use of natural gas and renewable fuels.
