Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor applauded today’s Senate passage of the Growing Climate Solutions Act, legislation that would break down barriers for farmers and foresters interested in participating in carbon markets.

“Farmers have already been making big investments in new technology to reduce their carbon emissions,” said Skor. “As reducing greenhouse gas emissions is top of mind for the biofuels industry, we are working with our ag partners to use sustainable farming practices to reduce emissions throughout the entire production lifecycle. The Growing Climate Solutions Act will rightly reward farmers nationwide for their efforts to reduce emissions.

“Our industry truly is from nature and for nature. We thank Senators Stabenow and Braun for their leadership in passing this legislation.”

In 2020, the U.S. produced the least CO2 emissions from energy in nearly 40 years -- and petroleum accounted for 97% of transportation sector emissions. Use of low-carbon biofuels like bioethanol today could reduce these emissions by 46%. eia.gov/todayinenergy/…
