Union labor can enable hydrogen’s carbon-cutting potential

November 19, 2021

While the results of the discussions at the COP26 Climate Summit in Glasgow, Scotland, are still being analyzed, there is no doubt that an all-of-the-above energy approach built by skilled union labor is required to meet our ambitious shared climate goals.

There is broad consensus that a greener future must address high emissions sectors like energy transport, steel and manufacturing, long haul trucking, maritime cargo, and transportation. Hydrogen is well poised to meet this challenge, as are the thousands of men and women of organized labor — especially the more than 359,000 men and women of the United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters (UA) — who are America’s best asset for building the 21st-century energy economy.
