GANA Climate Change Committee Releases Document on Legislation
June 25, 2009

The Glass Association of North America's (GANA) Climate Change Committee released a one-sheet document that outlines viewpoints from the flat glass industry in regards to possible climate change legislation. Such legislation would be enacted to lower the number of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere.

"Climate change legislation could gravely damage flat glass manufacturers if the concerns in this position paper are unheeded," said Bill Yanek, GANA's executive vice president. "We remain confident that our elected and regulatory leaders will listen to our case and craft climate change legislation that does not damage flat glass manufacturing during these challenging economic times."

The Climate Change Committee is a part of the GANA Flat Glass Manufacturing Division (FGMD).

"The FGMD invested a significant amount of time and effort into this concise summary of its position on climate change legislation," explained Yanek. "This industry consensus position communicates to elected and regulatory decision makers the concerns of the flat glass industry with regard to climate change legislation."
