Opposing energy efficiency standards

InfluenceMap Comment:

Have stated they do not support energy efficiency standards. Not supporting US standards on freezers. (Reuters, August 2014)

Extract from Source:

The Obama administration's rush to tackle climate change with new energy efficiency standards on grocery-store freezers has drawn fire from companies that in the past backed tighter benchmarks but say the latest rules are technically flawed and could drive some manufacturers out of business [...] A business coalition including the Chamber of Commerce and the American Petroleum Institute, calling the rules "flawed," zeroed in on the use of the social cost of carbon, a monetary estimate of how pollution affects health, weather and other factors.
