Its most recent advisory explores a proposed policy from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (MEPA). According to the article, MEPA’s proposal would require project leaders to discuss how a project affects climate change and how climate change influences the project. The policy would necessitate that proponents file a Climate Impact Assessment along with an Environmental Notification Form (ENF).
