President’s Industrial Emissions Strategy Will ‘Create Opportunity in Every Corner of the Country’

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Biden Administration’s industrial emissions strategy will reduce carbon emissions and other pollution while advancing clean manufacturing, creating jobs, responsibly advancing carbon capture, and harnessing the purchasing power of the federal government to create demand for low-carbon goods.

“The manufacturing and industrial sectors are responsible for nearly one-third of carbon emissions — and need to be at the forefront of any serious climate action plan. The Biden Administration’s industrial-emissions strategy will not only drive innovation in clean tech, but also will meet public health needs, foster a just energy transition, and create and maintain the type of good-paying, union jobs that will create opportunity in every corner of the country,” said Shannon Heyck-Williams, senior director of climate and energy policy for the National Wildlife Federation. “We will work with White House to ensure this strategy centers environmental justice and drives the nation toward its mid-century climate goals.”
