CCAC Commits to Scaling Up Action on Short-Lived Climate Pollutants

3 September 2013: Members of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition to Reduce Short-Lived Climate Pollutants (CCAC) met for the third meeting of the High Level Assembly, adopting a Communiqué reiterating their commitment to address near-term climate change, improve air quality and public health, and strengthen food and energy security, by taking urgent action to reduce emissions of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) like black carbon, methane, tropospheric ozone, and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).

In the Communiqué, CCAC members encourage a global awareness-raising effort to prevent air pollution-related diseases, which account for over six million deaths annually. The Communiqué also includes sections on scaling-up global efforts on: oil and natural gas production; municipal solid waste; hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) alternative technology and standards; heavy duty diesel vehicles and engines; support to national planning for action on SLCPs; brick production; household cooking and domestic heating; and regional assessments of SLCPs.

The meeting of the Assembly, which took place on 3 September 2013, in Oslo, Norway, was co-hosted by Norway's Minister of Environment and the Minister of International Development. At the meeting, Norway committed to contributing an additional 110 million Norwegian kroner (approximately US$20 million) to reduce emissions of SLCPs in developing countries.

The CCAC also announced three new members, namely: the Nordic Environment Finance Corporation; the Centre for Science and Environment; and Local Governments for Sustainability. The Coalition now brings together 72 partners, including 33 government partners, the European Commission, eight intergovernmental organizations and 30 non-governmental organizations (NGOs).

Launched in February 2012, CCAC aims to catalyze action on reducing black carbon, methane, certain hydroflurocarbons (HFCs) and other short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) to maximize agricultural, climate, energy and health benefits. The UN Environment Programme (UNEP) hosts the Coalition Secretariat. [UNEP Press Release] [Communiqué] [CCAC Website] [CCAC Press Release]

Businesses soon may meet California air rules by paying someone else to slash emissions

Published: Sunday, Aug. 11, 2013 - 12:00 am | Page 1A
Last Modified: Monday, Aug. 12, 2013 - 9:38 am

It will be a lifeline of sorts for the cement factories, oil refiners and hundreds of other businesses struggling with California's stringent greenhouse-gas restrictions.

Soon they'll be able to comply – in part – by paying other people to reduce their own carbon emissions.
That's right: Under standards being drawn up by the California Air Resources Board, companies that have to meet the state's greenhouse-gas standards will be able to satisfy part of their burden by purchasing "offsets" – credits that are generated when carbon emissions are slashed by others.

Such as a dairy farmer in Michigan. Or a company in Arkansas that destroys gaseous coolants from old refrigerators. Or a tree planter on California's own North Coast.

The use of offsets will inject a somewhat controversial element into California's effort to battle global warming.

Two environmental groups sued the state last year to prevent the use of offsets, although the case was dismissed in January. Their argument: Offsets undermine the basic goal of curbing greenhouse gases by letting companies buy credits for emission reductions that almost certainly would have happened anyway.
"What we actually need is straightforward, meaningful reductions in emissions," said Mark Reynolds of Citizens Climate Lobby, one of the groups that sued.

But state officials and some environmentalists say offsets are a perfectly legitimate way to combat global warming.

They say offsets give California companies greater leeway in how they follow the state's climate-change law, AB 32, which was signed into law in 2006. With companies spending an estimated $1 billion a year to comply, this flexibility will help them save money.

"Offsets are a low-cost mechanism," said Rajinder Sahota, manager of the ARB's climate change program evaluation branch. The ARB oversees the state's year-old carbon emissions standards and will police the use of offsets.

Still, some critics say companies in California shouldn't be allowed to satisfy part of their regulatory burden by paying someone in another state to curb their carbon emissions.

"The local communities living on the fence lines of the refineries and power plants and incinerators don't receive the benefits," said Jeff Conant of Friends of the Earth, another critic of offsets.

But because climate change is truly a global issue, advocates say it isn't important whether some of the emission reductions occur in another state.

"California is still cutting climate change pollution, which is what the law is about," said Derek Walker, an associate vice president with the Environmental Defense Fund.

Offsets aren't new; they've long been a part of the European Union's mandatory carbon program. In the United States, many businesses and individuals already use them voluntarily, often to show their concern for the environment.

Most famously, former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has bought credits from the Pacific Forest Trust, manager of the Fred M. van Eck Forest near Arcata, to offset the carbon emissions from his private jet travel. The money was used to help keep the forest healthy so its redwoods could soak up more carbon.
But for many companies facing California's carbon rules, offsets will likely become a necessity, not a luxury item.

AB 32 sets an annual cap on greenhouse-gas emissions, and reduces it each year. The goal is to reduce California's emissions to 1990 volumes by 2020, a drop of about 30 percent from current levels.

More than 400 manufacturers, food processors and other big industrial firms are subject to the rules. They currently have two ways to get their emissions under the cap: Shrink their carbon footprint somehow, or buy state-issued emission permits.

Offsets will provide a third avenue for compliance. Companies will be allowed to use offsets to satisfy up to 8 percent of their obligation under the law.

To this point, the ARB hasn't approved any offset projects. But the agency is evaluating more than 60 different projects, all of which are designed to dispose of methane, carbon and other forms of greenhouse gases. Decisions are expected by the end of summer, said ARB spokesman David Clegern.
"Everybody's waiting for this," said Jon Costantino, head of a Sacramento-based group called the Association of Carbon Market Participants. "Once there are approvals, there will certainly be activity – they will be bought and sold."

The projects awaiting the ARB's approval, located all over the country, are already in operation.
A privately run Arkansas incinerator has already destroyed nearly 3 million tons of greenhouse gases found in refrigerator coolants. Dairy farms as far away as Virginia and upstate New York have installed "digesters" that consume methane from livestock, while forest managers in California and Maine are offering offsets tied to increased tree planting and other measures.

State officials say industries will be allowed to use offsets from carbon reductions that have already taken place. "Let's reward everyone that took that early action," said the ARB's Sahota.

Project developers say their offsets aren't vague promises. Rather, they represent concrete measures, with results validated by outside auditors, that are making a difference in the fight against climate change.
"These gases have been destroyed, verified by independent third parties," said Patrick Pfeiffer of Eos Climate Inc., a San Francisco company that partners with companies to destroy greenhouse gases that leak out of abandoned refrigerators.

In anticipation of ARB's approval, companies and brokers are already buying and selling some offsets in limited volumes. On average, offsets sell for about $10 per ton of carbon reduced. That's about $3 less than the state-issued emissions permits.

Why the difference? Partly because there's a chance the ARB will reject an offset.
The state agency says it is training dozens of independent contractors to periodically inspect offset project sites and make sure the carbon reductions are legitimate.

As a result, companies could buy offsets only to find out they're worthless.
"There is a risk they're going to be invalidated," Costantino said. "There's just more risk with an offset."
