The Vermont Governor's Commission on Climate Change

The Vermont Governor's Commission on Climate Change (VGCCC) was established by Vermont Governor Jim Douglas via Executive Order 07-05 (pdf) and was directed to develop recommendations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Vermont, consistent with Vermont's need for continued economic growth and energy security.

In September 2006, a 31-member Plenary Group was convened. The Plenary Group was comprised of representatives from all sectors including higher education, state government, business, non-profit, municipal, and other sectors. The combined Commission and Plenary Group met 7 times between September 2006 and July 2007.
