GANA Climate Change Committee Releases Document
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
"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."
