Statement on President Obama's Climate Change Plan

From Heidi Biggs Brock, President of the Aluminum Association

"The aluminum industry is aggressively working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The industry has proactively taken steps in recent years to reduce its own carbon footprint by cutting North American perfluorocarbon (PFC) emissions by 85% since 1991. The unique characteristics of aluminum make it the material of choice for many applications developed specifically to improve energy efficiency, from cool metal roofs to light weight automotive parts that reduce the consumption of fuels.
