American chemistry is taking action to address climate change. First and foremost, we're exploring, developing, and deploying new technologies to reduce our own emissions. These include carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS); lower-emission hydrogen, steam, and electricity; the use of biomaterials and circular feedstocks instead of virgin materials; cracker electrification; and industrial energy efficiency programs, to name a few.
Meanwhile, our companies are providing essential inputs for energy-saving and renewable solutions that help others reduce emissions, from solar panels and wind turbines to electric and fuel-efficient vehicles, high-performance building materials, advanced batteries and more.
Climate and Environmental Justice
ACC supports the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people, regardless of race, color, national, origin or income, in issues related to the implementation and enforcement of environmental policies. We welcome the focus on ways the public and private sectors can work together to protect the environment, including our climate, air, water, and land. We support efforts to make public policy discussions more inclusive to ensure that traditionally underrepresented communities have a voice and that their concerns are factored into decision-making.
