9 March 2023
This webinar provided an overview of the Interim Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) National Environmental Policy
Act (NEPA) Guidance on Consideration of Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Climate Change, issued on 9 January 2023.
Presenters Jason Emmons (San Francisco District) and Ken Wong (Los Angeles District) from the Air Quality and
Greenhouse Gas Planning Sub-CoP discussed key details for planners and environmental managers on the new guidance,
including how to perform a greenhouse gas analysis starting from base assumptions for scoping to the end goal of
incorporating effects analysis into current NEPA studies. The presenters also addressed how to frame inclusion of different
topics for all classes of projects enterprise-wide, including baseline effects, no-action alternative emissions, avoided
emissions, gross and net alternatives emissions, and social cost of greenhouse gas emissions.
