On May 30, 2019, Governor Polis signed into law the “Climate Action Plan To Reduce Pollution”, known as House Bill 19-1261, and codified in the Colorado Air Pollution Prevention and Control Act, largely at §§ 25-7-102 and -105, C.R.S. House Bill 19-1261 established statewide greenhouse gas reduction targets of: 25% by 2025, 50% by 2030, and 90% by 2050.
On September 30, 2020, State agencies made public the first draft of the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Reduction Roadmap. The GHG Roadmap identified several sectors from which reductions will need to be realized to achieve Colorado’s climate goals. One of these sectors is the oil and gas industry.
The GHG Roadmap estimates that Colorado will need to secure a reduction in methane emissions from the oil and gas industry of:
- 33% by 2025 and
- 50% by 2030
This is an opportunity to learn, ask questions and participate in public input to the Air Pollution Control Division, one of the primary state agencies involved in regulating greenhouse gasses.
