NGSA Members Support Rejoining Paris Agreement
(Washington, D.C.) – The Natural Gas Supply Association (NGSA) issued the following statement today, following President Biden’s announcement that the United States will rejoin the Paris Agreement.
Dena Wiggins, President and CEO of NGSA, said:
Our member companies have long stated our support for remaining in the Paris Agreement as a platform to work with others around the world to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and attain a climate-neutral world.
We are committed to a clean energy future and believe that addressing greenhouse gas emissions is necessary to making that vision a reality.
Natural gas has played, and continues to play, a significant role in bringing the U.S. power sector’s carbon emissions to their lowest levels in decades by replacing higher-emitting fuels and facilitating greater use of renewables. NGSA is a strong proponent of market-based mechanisms, such as carbon pricing, that most effectively reduce greenhouse gas emissions at the lowest cost to consumers and believe such programs are most efficient when implemented as broadly as possible.
NGSA members are similarly committed to reducing methane emissions and making significant investments in processes and technologies to address emissions, reduce flaring and improve transparency and the quality of methane data. We support increased voluntary efforts and reasonable government policies to achieve further reductions of methane emissions, as well as scientifically sound, cost-effective and flexible methane policies and regulations that allow for efficient implementation, future technology deployment and continuous improvements.
NGSA announced its support for remaining in the Paris Agreement and principles for addressing methane emissions in September 2020.
NGSA and CLNG Welcome Incoming Biden Administration
