Grants to this Grantee
for promoting Green Development in Guangdong Province through Green Supply Chain  
The Environmental Defense Fund will promote a green supply chain in the Guangdong Province of China. This is a partnership between EDF, local Chinese NGOs, Western retailers like Walmart and Target, Chinese suppliers, local governments, and China’s Ministry of Environmental Protection. This project seeks to demonstrate that Chinese manufacturing can move up the value chain, be environmentally sustainable, and promote the low-carbon economy, all while increasing Chinese brand awareness and earning for South China’s factories and cities.
for the Path to a Low-Carbon Future: Reducing U.S. Methane Emissions from Oil and Gas  
This is a program support grant for the Environmental Defense Fund’s methane abatement program. The grant funds three general areas of work. First, to identify and work in three to six states—including Pennsylvania, California, and Oklahoma—where the state oil and gas commissions can institute rules to reduce methane emissions from oil and gas production. Second, to participate in the public rulemaking process by submitting expert evidence for the strongest possible federal methane rule. Finally, to promote methane emission standards and best-practice drilling standards on federal lands from the Department of the Interior. This work also supports creating market mechanisms to avoid the costly build out of gas infrastructure in the United States.
for the Path to a Low-Carbon Future: Natural Gas at the Crossroads project  
This is a program support grant for the Environmental Defense Fund’s methane abatement work. The grant funds three general areas of work. First, to identify and work in three to six states where the state oil and gas commissions can institute rules to reduce methane emissions from oil and gas production. Second, to use the experiences gained from working in the states to advocate for methane emission standards to the Environmental Protection Agency. Finally, to promote methane emission and best-practice drilling standards on federal lands from the Department of the Interior. This builds off successful work to regulate methane emissions in Colorado and Texas.
