A significant federal investment to modernize our nation’s infrastructure would create jobs, boost economic growth and save lives. Aluminum will be a critical building material in this new infrastructure. As manufacturers who rely on efficient transportation and a reliable infrastructure, aluminum industry members support increased public and private infrastructure funding that invests in seaports and airports, inland waterways, highways, transit systems, and the information and telecommunications system. Improving the performance of buildings, infrastructure and other public sites – particularly utilizing the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards and “green building” status – supports high-tech manufacturing, increases operational efficiencies, reduces carbon emissions and improves livability.
As the Biden adminstration and Congress continue to have discussions around potential infrastructure legislation, the Aluminum Association released a detailed infrastructure policy framework outlining top industry priorities for new U.S. infrastructure investment. Click here to read the framework.
