GLRPPR Sector Resource: Opportunities to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions through Materials and Land Management Practices

Title:
Opportunities to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions through Materials and Land Management Practices

Abstract:
To respond to the risk associated with climate change, this document describes the link between climate change and the materials and land management programs carried out by EPA’s Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER), and its federal, regional, state, tribal, community, and other public and private partners. The purpose of this document is two-fold. First, in order to increase understanding of the link between materials and land management and GHG emissions, this document presents an estimate of the portion of U.S. GHG emissions associated with materials and land management practices. Second, it presents a set of materials and land management scenarios—referred to as total technical potential scenarios—as a first step to identifying areas of opportunity for EPA and its partners to reduce GHG emissions through materials and land management.
