The members of each working group are appointed by the Commission Chair, and embody both the public and private interests in climate change to ensure well-balanced direction and broad expertise.
The Mitigation Working Group supports the charge of the Commission with a focus on regulatory, market-based and voluntary programs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while supporting economic development and job creation. For additional details on recent and planned activities, please see the group's Work Plan or past meeting materials posted on this page.
The MWG meets monthly at the Maryland Department of the Environment. These meetings are open to the public, and a portion of each meeting is set aside for public comment. The time, date and location for all Maryland Commission on Climate Change, Steering Committee and Working Groups meetings may be found on the MCCC Calendar.
In March, the Mitigation Working Group met to discuss labor and manufacturing in the context of climate change (see Agenda and Minutes ). Presentations were given by the Alliance for American Manufacturing ("Using Procurement Policies to Support American Manufacturing Jobs in Renewable Energy "), the Worker Institute at Cornell University's ILR School ("Economic Development, Job Creation and the Development of Robust Offshore Wind and Solar Industries in Maryland") and Exelon ("Maryland In-State Low Carbon Power and Jobs ").
