In May United Methodist Women members delivered almost 2,000 letters and met with Chevron staff pressing them to sign on to “Reducing Methane Emissions Across the Natural Gas Value Chain” guiding principles and reduce leaks across the supply chain.
We are pleased to learn that Chevron has signed on, and with recent attempts at federal methane reduction rollbacks, we urge Chevron to act on their commitments. In particular, guiding principle #4 states: to “advocate sound policies and regulations on methane emissions.
Tell Chevron to Plug the Leaks Now! Write to the new CEO of Chevron Mike Wirth, urging that Chevron take important steps towards fixing their leaks, supporting sound methane regulations, stopping new natural gas projects, and investing in renewable energy.
