Washington, D.C. — In response to the Biden Administration’s rule to phase down hydrofluorocarbons, the League of Conservation Voters released the following statement from Senior Director of Government Affairs  Matthew Davis:

“Today brings another example of how the Biden-Harris administration is using their all of government approach to tackle climate change by slashing emissions of super-pollutant HFCs and driving innovation and clean tech jobs here in the U.S. This critical action, which implements the bipartisan American Innovation and Manufacturing Act enacted by Congress last year, will help protect those communities, often low wealth communities and communities of color, who are most vulnerable to the damaging impacts of climate change. From the ‘code red for humanity’ IPCC report to devastating extreme weather and long-standing environmental and racial injustice and economic inequality, it’s never been more urgent or more important to act on climate. Congress needs to keep up the momentum by moving forward with the Build Back Better Act, which would put us on the path to reducing our emissions 50 percent by 2030, as science and justice require.”
