Statements on Climate Change
“The right policy framework is essential if we are to move our company, our industry and our nation ahead toward a more sustainable path. We firmly believe that framework should help us achieve meaningful greenhouse gas reductions, and should do so in a way that minimizes the cost impact for customers. However, since climate change is a national and global issue, we believe it should be addressed at those levels.” – Pat Vincent-Collawn, President and CEO
