We have an in-depth understanding of the rapidly developing laws and regulations affecting greenhouse gas emissions, including reporting requirements for existing facilities and disclosure and analysis for new facilities under SEPA and local environmental regulations.

Climate Change

The EPA, Washington Department of Ecology, King County and other state agencies are developing greenhouse gas registries and requiring new projects to calculate their carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act and State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA).  We understand the importance of environmental responsibility and impact that regulation of greenhouse gas emissions and carbon trading will have on a variety of industries, and provide relevant, timely advice in this rapidly developing field of law.  We are currently representing individuals and organizations involved in developing solutions to controlling greenhouse gas emissions, and are working on several projects that will provide carbon credits in conjunction with the restoration of habitat, water treatment and controlling stormwater runoff.
