DEC Announces 'Value of Carbon' Guidance to Measure Impacts of Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Multiple stories from New York state news channels cite RFF's involvement with the creation of new state-wide emissions guidance.
" The Value of Carbon guidance, developed by DEC in consultation with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and the non-profit organization Resources for the Future, establishes a monetary value for the avoided emissions of carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide; provides an up-to-date review of approaches used by other governments to place a value on emissions; and identifies future areas of work, including placing a value on other greenhouse gases and air pollutants."
