The 2030 Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Act Plan

The 2030 Greenhouse Gas Reduction Act Plan lays out our approach to Maryland's Greenhouse Gas reduction goals. The Plan calls for a goal of 50% reductions by 2030, as recommended by the Maryland Commission on Climate Change. With federal actions on climate change anticipated, Maryland expects to be able to achieve that goal.​
