Office of Greenhouse Gas Reduction Management
The EPA established the "Office of Greenhouse Gas Reduction Management" on July 1st, 2008. On August 18 of the same year, the organizational structure was expanded to three divisions: "Mitigation Strategy Planning," "Verification and Trading," and "Adaptation and Promotion." These divisions are responsible for developing and coordinating policies and regulations of climate change and greenhouse gas management.
Furthermore, on January 8, 2017, in order to integrate environmental sanitation, greenhouse gas reduction, and management activities, and the promotion of Low-carbon and Sustainable Homeland, the EPA merged the Office of Greenhouse Gas Reduction Management into the Department of Environmental Sanitation and Toxic Substance Management.
