Join us in our third letter writing campaign to the CEO of Chevron, urging the company to take greater action in reducing its emissions of methane, a harmful pollutant.
Chevron Corporation is the second largest emitter of carbon dioxide in the world since 1880. Chevron's footprint is massive, and its methane emissions are impacting people across the globe. Chevron is one of the top 10 producers of natural gas globally, and its production is only increasing. In the United States alone, Chevron is planning to increase its U.S. oil and gas production to 900,000 barrels a day by 2023 a sharp increase from last year's prediction of 650,000 barrels by 2023. Chevron has an opportunity to help reverse decades of environmental damage done to the earth and frontline communities particularly.
Since May 2018, United Methodist Women members have met with Chevron staff and sent thousands of letters urging Chevron to reduce methane emissions, to oppose the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) current proposal to dismantle U.S. federal methane regulations and to direct more capital allocations to clean renewable energy. Chevron publicly agreed to link executive compensation to performance-based methane and other monitoring efforts to reduce emissions but failed to act on the United Methodist Women's request for the company to support common-sense methane regulations.
Tell @Chevron to #CutMethane:
Live out the call to care for God's creation by writing to the CEO of Chevron, urging the company to take greater action in reducing its emissions of methane, supporting commonsense regulations and investing in renewable energy.
Dear Mr. Wirth,
I join with United Methodist Women, a faith-based organization of nearly 800,000 women, who are deeply concerned about the devastating impact of methane emissions on God's creation and communities. Since May 2018, we have met with your staff and sent you thousands of letters urging Chevron to reduce methane emissions, oppose the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) cur-rent proposal to dismantle federal methane regulations, and direct more capital allocations to clean renewable energy.
