Reducing methane emissions from the waste sector, including from landfills and dump sites, is a climate-critical but often overlooked strategy.
About This Event
RMI and Industrious Labs are hosting a webinar “The Low Hanging Fruit You’ve Been Missing: State-led Solutions to Tackle Dangerous Climate Pollution from Landfills, Create Economic Opportunity & Benefit Communities.” Does your state have waste that ends up in a landfill or incinerator? Have a climate action plan to address greenhouse gas reduction and environmental justice goals? Join Gina McCarthy, former White House national climate advisor and EPA administrator, and engage with a “solutions” panel of practitioners and advocates to examine data, dig into regulatory approaches, learn how states can make the most of IRA federal funding, and explore policies that ensure the highest, most beneficial use of organic waste.
