climate solutions and economic opportunities stakeholder engagement process

The Climate Subcommittee of the Minnesota Environmental Quality Board (EQB) lead a project to evaluate a variety of strategies for their potential to grow our economy and reduce greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change, an initiative known as Climate Solutions and Economic Opportunities (CSEO).

The goal of the project was to provide multiple opportunities for stakeholders to share ideas, information, and perspectives that helped to inform decisions about potential near-term (2015 – 2030) actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Environmental Initiative worked on behalf of the Subcommittee to engage stakeholders in this effort. A series of large informational events and smaller working sessions were held between November 2014 and February 2015.
