Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventory
The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, Division of Air Quality, has prepared its 2015 inventory of the sources and amounts of “greenhouse gas” (GHG) emissions for Alaska. The information and methodologies used in preparing the updated and 2010 inventory are described in the report. The department anticipates preparing future updates to the inventory and welcomes comments from reviewers on ways to make future inventories more useful and accurate. The goal of the department in preparing the GHG inventories is to provide the interested public and policy-makers with reliable information on the sources and amounts of GHG emissions related to power production, transportation, economic development and other human activities in the state. The inventory is not intended to be a policy statement but to simply help inform discussions about GHG emissions.
We thank you for your interest and any suggestions you have.
