Propane Council Partners with Audubon International Partnership

Propane Council Partners with Audubon International Partnership will encourage the use of low-emission propane equipment and advance environmental stewardship

The Propane Education & Research Council announces it has partnered with environmental nonprofit Audubon International to advance the use of clean, low-emission propane equipment, which aligns with Audubon International’s mission to facilitate responsible environmental management practices.

PERC’s support of Audubon International demonstrates a commitment to promoting awareness of propane’s environmental benefits. This partnership will explore various demonstrations and educational programs that increase awareness of propane as an alternative fuel and available incentives. With the availability of propane-powered landscape and turf equipment, propane autogas vehicles, commercial heating systems, and agricultural equipment from a variety of manufacturers, many industries can experience the fuel’s benefits.

Propane significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions and smog-forming hydrocarbons compared with conventional fuels. Simply switching from gasoline- and diesel-fueled equipment to propane-powered equipment can reduce carbon pollution and help communities implement environmental initiatives.

“As the country’s leading alternative fuel, clean, American-made propane is already positively impacting thousands of communities,” says Roy Willis, PERC’s president and CEO. “This partnership will allow us to educate many more groups on propane’s environmental benefits and expand our outreach and programming. We look forward to collaborating with Audubon International to help communities achieve sustainability goals and reduce their carbon footprint.”

PERC joins Audubon International as a sponsor of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program (ACSP). The ACSP is an education and certification program designed to help businesses protect the environment while enhancing their bottom line. It offers guidance on implementing sustainability plans and recognizes organizations through certification.

“Our future depends on incremental changes in behavior and technologies that reduce our impact on nature,” says Doug Bechtel, Audubon International’s executive director. “Choosing to use propane-fueled equipment is a positive step that can have benefits as more and more industries explore this alternative.”
