BEYOND NET ZERO
BEYOND A SINGULAR SOLUTION
Regulatory StrategyTwenty-plus years at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has put us in the middle of almost every environmental challenge.
We’re engaged in economic and environmental initiatives that result in the greater good.
A Changing Climate
Providing institutional support to help strategically manage the risks and opportunities associated with greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and climate change.
Santa Fe County Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory
In 2017, the Santa Fe County Board of Commissioners adopted a Resolution 2017-68 affirming its commitment to the Paris Agreement and signed onto “We Are Still In.” To further its goals, the County contracted Adelante Consulting to develop greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventories for calendar years 2005, 2017 and 2018, quantifying emissions from the County’s municipal operations only. The inventories include emissions from the following primary sources: stationary energy, transportation, solid waste, and water and wastewater management. Both Scope 1 and 2 emissions are reported.
New Mexico Clean Fuel Standard Evaluation
This report presents a preliminary evaluation of the environmental and economic impacts of implementing a clean fuel standard (CFS) in New Mexico. A CFS is a market-based trading program under which the State specifies a schedule on which the carbon intensity (CI) of transportation fuels must be reduced, and the regulated entities must either adjust their operations to meet the rate of reduction, or buy credits from those whose reductions have exceeded the requirements.
There is a common misperception improving our environment comes at the cost of our economic well-being. It simply isn’t true.
Many companies, like EOG Resources, are looking to invest in return-focused, low emissions technology.
ACEEE released the State Transportation Electrification Scorecard this morning ranking New Mexico the last among ranked states. Setting greenhouse gas emissions reductions targets is one of the recommendations in the report. The proposed Clean Fuel Standard, Senate Bill 11, aims to do just that while improving public health and creating new jobs.
From our very own ranch revitalization project to developing a residential-scale septic system that reduces excess nitrogen and discharges an effluent stream clean enough to be beneficially re-used for landscape irrigation, our employee-owned company is committed to creating innovative solutions with the future in mind.
