The U.S. Carbon Advantage in Chemicals Manufacturing

September 13, 2022

The Climate Leadership Council’s Center for Climate and Trade hosted a virtual event unveiling a first-of-its-kind study on America’s carbon efficiency advantage in the chemicals industry. The key takeaway: the U.S. is one of the cleanest players in the global chemicals industry, generating significantly less emissions to produce the same chemicals as key competitors overseas.

The U.S. carbon advantage in chemicals manufacturing can and should be leveraged to enhance the competitiveness of U.S. chemical manufacturers and increase global climate ambition. This discussion of the findings includes perspectives from leaders in industry and government, including Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and Tony Will, President and Chief Executive Officer of CF Industries.
