- Massachusetts & the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI)
In January 2007, Massachusetts joined the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), a cooperative effort by Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that contributes to global climate change. To address this important environmental issue, RGGI and its member states have developed a regional strategy for controlling emissions, including a market-based, multi-state cap-and-trade program that requires electric power generators to reduce their emissions of carbon dioxide.

- Leading by Example: Climate Change
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is expected to experience warmer temperatures, increased frequency and intensity of storms, public water supply shortages, rising sea levels, and increased erosion which threaten our coastal areas. Recognizing the gravity of these threats, Massachusetts state agencies are taking the lead in reducing their environmental impacts.
