HOUSTON- DECEMBER 6, 2017 – Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA) President David Holt released the following statement after America’s natural gas and oil industry today announced a landmark partnership to accelerate improvements to environmental performance in operations across the country:
“CEA applauds the Environmental Partnership on their efforts to reduce air emissions through this new voluntary program. We agree that the United States can have both environmental progress and sensible energy solutions. This is a great step towards positive environmental progress in the era of the Energy Revolution. While America produces more and more of our energy here at home, innovation and ingenuity continue to advance so that significant safety and environmental progress can continue.
“CEA has long advocated for an all of the above approach to energy and seeks to find common ground on ways to protect the environment, ensure the lowest possible prices, create greater energy security for struggling households, upgrade America’s infrastructure and push forward with cutting edge innovations. We agree that the environment is vital to our future and we’ll continue to push companies to innovate their technology, reduce emissions and operate under the highest safety standards — that holds true for all forms of energy, including coal, oil, natural gas, nuclear, solar and wind.”
