PRIORITY CLIMATE ACTION PLAN
Climate Pollution Reduction Grant Program Stakeholder Session: Halogenated Gases
The State of NJ has received $3 million from the U.S. EPA to update and enhance the state’s existing climate action plans. The NJDEP is leading the development of a Priority Climate Action Plan (PCAP) that will be a highly focused, near-term list of implementation-ready measures to help the state achieve its 2030 goal of a 50 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. The PCAP will focus on six priority areas: transportation, buildings, electric generation, food waste, highly warming gases, and natural working lands. For more information about NJDEP’s development of the PCAP, visit: https://go.rutgers.edu/NJDEP_PCAP
The New Jersey Climate Change Resource Center at Rutgers is working with the NJDEP to gather input from stakeholders regarding three of those six priority areas: food waste, highly warming gases and natural working lands. Stakeholders are invited to participate in these upcoming topical virtual stakeholder sessions.
Most halogenated gases are hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) with high global warming potential (GWP) and are primarily used as refrigerants. Halogenated gases are short-lived, potent greenhouse gases with up to thousands of times more heat-trapping potential than carbon dioxide on a pound for pound basis. For more information, visit the NJDEP’s website with information about New Jersey’s Greenhouse Gas Monitoring and Reporting rule (https://dep.nj.gov/ghg/ghgmr-rule/).
