OUR MISSION

Accelerating the real-world deployment of secure, resilient, and sustainable transportation and energy solutions of the United States, and its partners and allies, by shaping policies, perceptions, and practices that create opportunity for all.

SAFE unites prominent military and business leaders to develop and advocate for policies that improve America’s energy security by significantly curtailing our dependence on oil and promoting responsible use of our domestic energy resources. SAFE relies on the knowledge and experience of four-star retired military officers, Fortune 500 CEOs, and its expert staff to produce high-quality, fact based analysis and policy recommendations for lawmakers, regulatory agencies, and the public.

Armed with a deep understanding of the issues, SAFE leads the conversation on energy and transportation policy with the goal of bolstering America’s economic and national security. Agile and multidisciplinary, SAFE maintains a strategic ability to adapt to the rapidly evolving energy and transportation landscape with real-time, up-to-date analysis and recommendations. mate change and energy

SAFE Report Addresses How U.S. Industry Can Benefit from Climate Imperatives, Security Concerns

Posted on: December 7, 2021

Washington, D.C. – Today, SAFE Commanding Heights issued Stoking an Industrial Renaissance: Opportunities for U.S. Decision-Makers. The report outlines policy proposals that can revitalize American manufacturing to compete in a world shaped by the rise of China and the value of reducing carbon emissions.

Shortages of medical equipment, semi-conductors, and consumer goods leading up to holiday season have focused national attention on the importance of supply chains. This report primarily addresses heavy industrial sectors such as steel, aluminum, chemical, minerals, and other foundational materials needed for products supporting energy, transportation, health, and national security.

Research has shown that the United States—along with Canada and other technologically advanced democracies—typically generates less carbon (along with other pollution) in industrial production compared to China and other emerging economies. The U.S. can further leverage this advantage through clean manufacturing practices that can level the competitive playing field in a world where carbon reduction goals drive business sourcing and consumer purchasing decisions.

“What’s become clear is that too many of our most vital materials and products are sourced and manufactured overseas by countries that share neither our interests nor our values,” notes Dr. Jeb Nadaner, Executive Director of SAFE’s Commanding Heights Initiative. “Let’s seize this opportunity to shape the future of high-tech industrial manufacturing and lead the world into a job-rich, cleaner and more secure future for ourselves and for generations to come.”

SAFE recommends policy decisions and taxpayer dollars accomplish several important goals simultaneously:

Ensuring the security of industrial supply chains and reducing dependency on China for critical products and materials;

Decreasing global carbon emissions by accelerating transition to cleaner manufacturing in the U.S. and like-minded nations; and

Enhancing job opportunities and living standards for working class Americans.

The report’s policy options include:

Tax credits & incentives to encourage capital intensive heavy industries to establish clean manufacturing within the U.S.

Loan guarantees to lower the risk of re-shoring heavy industry and adopting cleaner practices

Carbon border adjustment mechanism to provide a competitive pricing advantage to the U.S. and nations with comparable interests and environmental standards

Federal procurement requirements to provide additional market demand for “Buy Clean” as well as “Buy American”

Clean product standard to limit carbon emissions per unit of heavy industry content (akin to fuel economy standards in automobiles)
