State Climate Change Commission
The Oregon Global Warming Commission (Commission) was created to develop long-term policy recommendations to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Oregon, pursuant to the following goals:
- By 2010, stop the increase of Oregon's GHG emissions and begin to reduce GHG emissions;
- By 2020, achieve GHG levels that are 10% below 1990 levels; and
- By 2050, achieve GHG levels that are at least 75% below 1990 levels.
The Commission follows the work of the Climate Change Integration Group to track and report on the state's progress on GHG emissions reductions and assess future economic and societal implications of climate change. The Commission submitted the 2009 Report for the Legislature (PDF 1.4 MB) in January 2009. Download Adobe Reader
