Accommodating CEQ’s New GHG and Climate Change Guidelines

    August 2016

    On August 1, the White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) released guidelines that will impact all entities operating in the US, including the private sector and state and local governments, as well as entities that require authorizations for decisions from the US and international agencies in which the US participates. Public and private entities need to understand that this guidance adds a very substantial additional analytical requirement to agency reviews under NEPA.
