Energy and Environment

Manufacturers support an energy strategy that embraces all forms of domestic energy production while expanding existing conservation and efficiency efforts. Oil, natural gas and clean coal remain essential contributors to America’s energy security, while investment continues to grow in other energy sources such as nuclear, alternative fuels and renewable energy.

The NAM continues to lead the way in advancing energy efficiency and sustainability efforts that positively impact manufacturing and the industry’s contributions to environmental protection.
