Roadmap graphic
In 2007 Oregon set a 2020 greenhouse gas reduction goal that is almost 30% below today's levels. How do we get there? In October 2010 the Oregon Global Warming Commission unanimously adopted a roadmap of ideas.

Committee Scope and Function

The Energy, Utilities and Stationery Sources Committee is focused on reductions in the >60% of Oregon’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that come from utility-served energy – electricity and gas – for residential, commercial and industrial uses, and the non-energy emissions associated with manufacturing and agriculture. In 2008, the Committee offered recommendations to the Oregon Legislature on the proposed western GHG “cap and trade” system. The Committee is also concerned with managing the economic impacts of expected national carbon reduction policies on Oregon’s economy and the competitiveness of its companies while complying with its GHG reduction obligations. Energy efficiency and process efficiency gains are key components of such strategies.
