White House Issues Guidance Advising Agencies to Assess Climate Change in NEPA Reviews
Thursday, August 11, 2016
On August 1, the White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) issued its final guidance for federal agencies on considering greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and the effects of climate change in National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) reviews.1 This final guidance comes after the first draft was released in 2010, and a revised draft was released in 2014. A number of provisions in the final guidance would increase the volume and scope of climate reviews, including removing the proposed numeric emissions threshold for conducting a climate change analysis and advising agencies to consider climate change’s impacts on a project as well as affected communities. Going forward, project sponsors will need to ensure that supporting analysis adequately addresses climate change issues in order to bolster permitting and other federal government actions against third-party environmental challenges.
