Oregon Climate Protection Program Equity Advisory to Meet

The first meeting of the Equity Advisory Committee under Oregon’s Climate Protection Program will be held on December 7, 2022. The Committee will provide recommendations to DEQ on applications from non-profit organizations to become community climate investment entities. These entities will collect payments from companies that purchase credits to meet their greenhouse gas emission reduction obligations and will distribute funds (community climate investments) for projects in Oregon. The Committee will also play an important role in determining what types of emission reduction projects are supported by the community climate investments and where the projects are located.
