Join The BlueGreen Alliance and Support Strong National Methane Standards
Make your voice heard
Send your comments to the EPA urging them to support strong national methane standards for the energy industry.
There is a connection between environmental protection, public and worker safety, and good jobs. That’s one of the reasons we’re members of the BlueGreen Alliance. Reducing methane leaks across the stream (both upstream and downstream) can produce a triple benefit—protecting workers and their communities, our environment, and maintaining and creating good jobs. That’s why we support the EPA’s work in reducing methane across the spectrum of the natural gas infrastructure.
We need to help get 500 additional comments and the deadline to send them in is December 4!
The energy sector is rapidly expanding without important public health and environmental protections, and urgent action is needed. Proven, low-cost technologies are already commercially available to cut methane emissions from the oil and gas sector.
Without enforceable standards, energy companies have little incentive to improve and reduce methane emissions by keeping gas in the system, despite the availability and cost-effectiveness of mitigation technology. That’s why we’re asking you to show your support for strong, enforceable standards.

FACEBOOK: Protect workers and our communities by telling the EPA we need strong methane standards to #cutmethane now. Reducing methane leaks across the stream (both upstream and downstream) can produce a double benefit—protecting workers and their communities, as well as our environment. That’s why we support the EPA’s work in reducing methane across the spectrum of the natural gas infrastructure.
