National Recycling Coalition webinar series
Much of the discussion of climate change has focused on ‘smokestack and tailpipe’ greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, due to the way standard (a.k.a. ‘production’ or ‘sector-based’) GHG inventories are designed conducted: measuring GHG’s emitted within a geopolitical boundary (e.g., country, state, county, city). Therefore climate protection solutions and policies have focused on energy and transportation (i.e., ‘smokestacks and tailpipes’). However, an alternative ‘consumption’ (a.k.a. ‘systems-based’) GHG inventory approach reveals that over 40% of global GHG emissions come from production, consumption, and disposition of food and manufactured products. In this class, you will learn about the different types of GHG inventories, and how and why Zero Waste Climate Protection (ZWCP) is a significant yet overlooked solution.
