Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Reductions

Archived: 08/01/2010

The State of Colorado has set goals to reduce GHG emissions by 20% below 2005 values by 2020 and by 80% below 2005 values by 2050. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) is directed to develop regulations to submit to its Air Quality Control Commission that mandate reporting of GHG emissions from all major sources. CDPHE must plan for performing updates to the state's GHG inventory and identify and evaluate the benefits and impediments to measures designed to reduce tailpipe emissions from light-duty vehicles, including the utility and availability of alternative fuel vehicles. Additionally, CDPHE must develop a proposal for reducing net GHG emissions from the state's transportation sector. (Reference Executive Order D004 08) Download Adobe Reader
