An annual gross accounting of GHG emissions in Vermont.

This report provides analysis and detailed scenario modeling using the Low Emissions Analysis Platform (LEAP) model, presenting details on the pathways, strategies, policies, and actions that meet the requirements of the GWSA across three time periods: 2025, 2030, and 2050.

Developed to inform the Vermont Climate Council, its subcommittees, and related task groups on the current balance of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and carbon stocks related to agriculture, forestry, and other land uses (AFOLU) in Vermont.

The Joint Fiscal Office (JFO) was charged in the Global Warming Solutions Act (GWSA) with producing a report for legislators that analyzes the “economic, budgetary, and fiscal costs and benefits of the Plan”. In partial fulfillment of that charge, this report offers a brief overview of the CAP, with a focus on emission reduction requirements, and raises key points for legislators to consider.
