0 Reviews
This review evaluates the extent to which the EPA┐s Greenhouse Gas (GHG) voluntary programs can significantly reduce future GHG emissions, and whether their data is complete and reliable. The set of voluntary GHG programs reviewed use outreach efforts to recruit program partners and reduce GHG emissions. The greatest barriers to participation were the perceived emission reduction costs and reporting requirements. It is unlikely that these voluntary programs can reduce more than 19% of the projected 2010 GHG emissions for their industry sectors. If EPA wishes to reduce GHG emissions beyond this point, it needs to consider additional policy options. Includes recommendations. Charts and tables.
