California Climate Policy Update

Tuesday, October 20, 2020
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm PT

As California is experiencing catastrophic impacts from climate change, including deadly wildfires and record setting heatwaves, the state is looking to amplify its efforts to address the impacts and quicken the pace of climate initiatives to prevent future climate disasters. California’s Cap-and-Trade Program has been one tool the state is using to meet its emissions reduction goals, and as of May 2020, the program has provided $6.278 billion that has been invested in projects under California Climate Investments. But with lower auction revenues driven by the pandemic, some are questioning how the program should change to ensure its continued effectiveness in the near term. California has several other initiatives under various state agencies and new executive orders that are working towards reducing emissions, protecting the environment and strengthening communities. In this webinar, speakers will discuss the importance of the state’s different climate tools and how their impacts can be amplified when time is of the essence.

The Climate Action Reserve has been honored to host the most august community of climate leaders each year at the North American Carbon World (NACW) conference. A top priority is always to ensure the health and wellbeing of our peers in this community. Part of our preparation for this year’s event has included closely following the development of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), listening to concerns and reactions from you and your organizations and monitoring advisories from the City of San Francisco and the World Health Organization. Based on all of this, we have made the decision to cancel NACW 2020. 

We will be looking into the possibility of turning a few of the sessions into webinars in the next several months. Each year we appreciate the inspiration and collaboration we take away from NACW, and we hope to make an announcement shortly regarding dates for NACW 2021. Until we see you then, we hope you all are able to continue on your amazing paths to developing and implementing meaningful climate solutions and that you stay healthy.
