“Reducing U.S. Greenhouse Gases: How Much at What Cost?”

What

:

McKinsey & Company and The Conference Board release a major study on the options for reducing emissions of greenhouse gases in the United States. Published on the eve of a major intergovernmental conference, the report is based on in-depth analysis of more than 250 abatement options covering the main greenhouse gas emitting sectors of the economy. For the first time, it gives business leaders and policy makers a comprehensive framework for assessing the costs and benefits associated with alternate paths towards greenhouse gas abatement. The analysis suggests that the United States can make substantial progress towards lowering emissions at manageable costs to the economy, if early action is taken. The report was produced in association with DTE Energy, Environmental Defense, Honeywell, National Grid, Natural Resources Defense Council, PG&E, and Shell.
