WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute, Alliance for Responsible Atmospheric Policy, American Chemistry Council, and National Association of Manufacturers issued the following statement today in response to EPA's announced HFC Allocation Rule.

"We applaud the EPA for finalizing a balanced HFC Allocation Rule on time, a critical step in phasing down hydrofluorocarbons over the next fifteen years and a win-win for both the climate and the economy. The plan allows U.S. manufacturers to maintain a technological advantage over foreign competitors in the global marketplace in supporting an appropriate transition, while creating thousands of new and good paying jobs in the U.S.

"When aligned with international efforts, this phasedown will help avoid up to 0.5 degrees Celsius rise in temperature, important to meeting global climate ambitions."
