Environmental Partnership Grows To More Than 40 Participants

The Environmental Partnership organization has now grown more than 50% since its launch last December, with 43 companies from the oil and natural gas sector participating in the initiative, reports the American Petroleum Institute. Participants have committed to implementing environmental performance programs geared toward further reducing emissions, and annual reporting that will be compiled and released to the public.

“The phenomenal interest we have seen in the Environmental Partnership, and efforts to further reduce methane emissions, has exceeded our expectations,” said Matthew Todd, partnership program director. “The initiative highlights how America’s oil and natural gas companies are working together to deliver environmental progress while providing affordable and reliable energy in the cleanest and most efficient ways.” Todd added that the Environmental Partnership started hosting industry workshops earlier this year, and the group is participating in public conferences that expand dialog with experts from several fields to share ideas, learn about the latest technologies, and discuss strategies to best implement best practices that reduce emissions.

“As we continue to grow, our participants are improving their environmental performance and responsibly developing our nation’s essential oil and natural gas reserves,” he said.
