Client: Minnesota Pollution Control Agency
Author: Liz Stanton, PhD
On behalf of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, Clinic Director and Senior Economist Liz Stanton, PhD assisted MPCA with its adaptation of the Consumption-Based Emissions Inventory (CBEI) for Minnesota. CBEI estimates the emission impacts of a state, county or city from the point of view of what is consumed in that jurisdiction (in contract to production-based or geographic-based inventories). While at the Stockholm Environment Institute, Dr. Stanton led the team that designed CBEI and implemented it for Oregon, King County (Washington), San Francisco, and California.
