PA Chamber Joins Coalition to Lower Energy Costs, Decrease Emissions
The Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry announced last week that it has joined a broad coalition of energy companies, climate advocates, and labor groups to launch the Partnership to Address Global Emissions (PAGE).
The coalition is dedicated to promoting U.S. policies to reduce global emissions by developing the infrastructure needed to increase production and support the exportation of natural gas. The goal is to provide cleaner, cheaper, and more secure energy to the world all while launching a jobs boom here in the U.S.
EQT Corporation, TC Energy and Williams are founding members of PAGE, and an advisory council of supportive individuals and organizations – from think tanks, trade unions and academia – will provide outside guidance and expertise to the coalition and its members.
Advisory council representatives include:
- Paul Bledsoe – Strategic Advisor: Climate, Energy, Economics, Progressive Policy Institute
- Naomi Boness, Ph.D. – Managing Director, Stanford Natural Gas Initiative and Stanford Hydrogen Initiative, Stanford University
- James T. Callahan – General President, International Union of Operating Engineers
- Alex Herrgott – President and CEO, The Permitting Institute
- Sasha Mackler – Executive Director of the Energy Program, Bipartisan Policy Center
- Mark McManus – General President, United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting Industry of the United States and Canada (UA)
- Richard Morningstar – Founding Chairman, Global Energy Center, Atlantic Council and former U.S. Ambassador to the European Union
On joining PAGE, Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry President and CEO Luke Bernstein said:
“Pennsylvania natural gas can lead the next energy chapter for America, our allies overseas, and the world. The PAGE data shows that Pennsylvanians overwhelmingly support moving our natural gas to market in order to lower emissions, lower energy costs, and bolster our economy. This is a win-win for Pennsylvania’s economy, businesses, environment, and all residents across the Commonwealth. We have the resources and talent; we need the collective will and leadership to move our gas to market and unleash Pennsylvania’s potential.”
