New EPA Standards Will Result in More Jobs, Less Carbon


New Environmental Protection Agency standards that for the first time will cut carbon pollution from power plants are an economic catalyst that will drive innovation and investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency and will trigger economic growth throughout the United States, according to the nonpartisan business group Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2).

By sending a clear market signal to businesses that America is on the path to a clean energy future, these common-sense standards will create hundreds of thousands of good, high-paying jobs that will help make our nation’s workforce more competitive.

“Here’s what these standards mean for America: More jobs, less carbon pollution,” said E2 executive director Bob Keefe.
