2019 Greenhouse Gas Taskforce

In 2019, Efficiency Vermont established a Greenhouse Gas Taskforce to assess new and innovative greenhouse gas reduction strategies related to energy efficiency with the potential to influence manufacturing and supply chain processes for efficient products, and Vermont-business and building-level greenhouse gas footprint calculations and incentive programs.
