FECM plays an important role in providing solutions that address the climate crisis. This includes working to minimize the climate and environmental impacts of fossil energy and key industrial processes to help achieve net-zero emissions across the United States economy. The office works to achieve that mission in ways that benefit communities, provide high-wage jobs, and support domestic energy, industry, and manufacturing.  The overall focus is to ensure the nation’s energy security, build sustainable supply chains, and significantly accelerate reductions in greenhouse gas emissions—all at the same time.
