Grants to this Grantee
for industry research and support of the Moving Beyond Oil Coalition
Part of the Beyond Oil Coalition, Oil Change International works to provide information about the true costs of oil and facilitate the coming transition toward clean energy. With this proposed grant, Oil Change International will produce analysis and materials that will support campaigns to reduce the environmental impact of oil from production to consumption. Two examples include research and reports on (1) the costs the oil industry is not paying due to loopholes in existing environmental laws such as the Safe Water Drinking Act and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act and (2) the trajectory of U.S. refinery emissions to support the implementation of a strong EPA greenhouse gas refinery rule.
