“Reducing the carbon footprint, particularly in the energy sector, is an important factor in the global effort to improve air quality and favorably impact climate change. Propane has proven to be a positive contributor to the goal of lowering the carbon intensity given its versatile, clean burning qualities, and is a necessary part of the transition to a lower carbon economy. With advancements in new technologies for the production of propane from renewable sources, propane is on a pathway to carbon neutrality. Through our Go Green with Suburban Propane initiatives, we are committed to educating consumers, legislators and other key stakeholders on the benefits of propane for a sustainable energy future, and also investing in the next generation of an even cleaner version of this great American energy source.”
