To date, CO2自2000年以来，美国发电的排放量下降了30％。即使没有排放的减少要求，API建模项目即使是由于燃料切换，天然气将继续推动电力部门的排放减排。
America’s oil and natural gas industry has a long-standing commitment to protecting the environment. The industry’s environmental investments represent a crucial aspect of today’s energy exploration and production process.
美国石油和天然气工业已经投资估计$355.9 billion1990 - 2017年改善其产品，设施和运营的环境绩效 - 每人，美国女子和儿童的1,078美元。此外，石油和天然气工业在2000年至2014年期间投资了900亿美元的新低和零排放技术。这证明了行业致力于保护环境，以便我们能够满足今天的能源需求和发展下一代能源形式。
Our nation’s refineries compete in global markets, are committed to the environment, and spent more than $172 billion between 1990 and 2017 to help upgrade facilities to reduce processing emissions and producing cleaner-burning fuels. Gasoline produced today has reduced levels of sulfur, toxics and summer vapor pressure, improving air quality. Ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel has 99.5 percent less sulfur – and is now produced for all highway and non-road uses, allowing for dramatically reduced nitrogen oxide emissions from newer diesel engines. Refiners have dramatically changed fuel formulations across the country and continue to enable significant reductions in vehicle tailpipe emissions.
In 2019, The Environmental Partnership focused its second full year on growing the coalition, expanding its reach and impacts, and harnessing the growing enthusiasm within the participating companies. The Partnership continues to demonstrate the oil and natural gas industry’s commitment to deliver improved environmental performance by采取行动，学习和合作while delivering the essential energy that powers America’s economy and quality of life.
在很大程度上归功于天然气和石油生产和创新的重大投资，以及行业举措环境伙伴关系，天然气使美国能够减少排放，同时实现经济增长。环境伙伴关系年度报告was released on July 30 and details the remarkable environmental progress the Partnership has made using a unique model of substantive information sharing and collaboration on technologies and techniques to reduce methane emissions. It’s a model that could be applied to meet other challenges in the future.
环境伙伴关系is comprised of companies in the U.S. oil and natural gas industry committed to continuously improve the industry’s environmental performance.
Expenditures covered in this report are those related to the prevention, control, abatement or elimination of environmental pollution by the U.S. oil and natural gas industry in the United States and its territories. Interested in this report or more information, contactWexiao Dai.在DaiW@api.org。
