Environment & Energy

Pork producers are dedicated to protecting the environment. Like all Americans, they are concerned about safeguarding the nation’s resources for future generations. In addition to being subject to federal and state environmental regulations, the pork industry has worked with all levels of government to develop science-based practices addressing use and management of valuable nutrients. Pork producers also are committed to conserving energy and helping reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil. The industry supports the development and use of alternative and renewable fuels but seeks a level playing field for producers to compete for finite resources.
