 Home / Guidance on Consideration of Greenhouse Gases

The Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) has published draft guidance on how National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) analysis and documentation should address greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This Draft National Environmental Policy Act Guidance on Consideration of Greenhouse Gas Emissions, if finalized, would replace the final guidance CEQ issued on August 1, 2016, titled "Final Guidance for Federal Departments and Agencies on Consideration of Greenhouse Gas Emissions and the Effects of Climate Change in National Environmental Policy Act Reviews," which was withdrawn effective April 5, 2017, for further consideration pursuant to Executive Order 13783 of March 28, 2017, "Promoting Energy Independence and Economic Growth." The draft guidance is provided here, in the Supplementary Information section of the CEQ Federal Register notice, and on the CEQ website at https://www.whitehouse.gov/ceq/initiatives/.
