Description: SEI developed a consumption-based inventory of all greenhouse gases associated with the economy in Oregon (including emissions released to produce and transport goods made out of state).This pioneering effort, which is the first consumption-based GHG inventory for a U.S. state, aims to help Oregon policymakers better understand the state's contribution to global greenhouse gas emissions and design new strategies to address the emissions associated with consumption.
