Working group description and purpose

The Ozone Depleting Substance Offset Protocol Technical Working Group is comprised of individuals with expertise in the development, registration, verification, or analysis of compliance or voluntary ozone depleting substances projects. As part of the WAC 173-446 Offsets Rulemaking, Ecology is considering revisions and additions to offset protocols adopted in WAC 173-446. The purpose of this working group is to help inform Ecology’s decisions related to revisions to the adopted California’s Air Resources Board (CARB) Compliance Offset Protocol – Ozone Depleting Substances– November 14, 2014. The working group will provide input on a series of potential revisions under consideration sourced from CARB 2021 Offset Taskforce Report, voluntary offset market protocols, and public comments received during this and previous rulemakings.

Meeting schedule

The working group began in March and met every three weeks through June.

Scheduled Meetings

The fourth Ozone Depleting Substances Technical Working Group meeting is scheduled for June 4th, 2024 from 8 am- 10 am

Ecology isforming an Environmental Justice Offset Working Group that is expected to begin meeting in the summer. This group will help inform environmental justice considerations related to any protocol changes. Members of this group will not need to have knowledge about offsets or the Climate Commitment Act, and we will instead seek members with lived or professional experience with environmental justice and injustice.
