These graphs show the changes in emissions, emissions drivers, and policy in the Industry sector in the US
Emissions Industry emissions
Industrial emissions declined before the recession even as industrial production rose
Emissions Drivers Energy intensity by sector
As manufacturing grew, industrial sectors generally improved their energy intensity, but in some cases performance declined. Structural changes to U.S. industry led to lower emissions intensity.
There was little cohesive industrial policy. Participation in the federal industrial assessment program declined, while state level programs grew.
