The California Air Resources Board recently released a Scoping Plan Update that maps out the state’s plan for meeting the 2030 goal of reducing GHGs 40 percent below 1990 levels. This requires reductions across every sector with a focus on energy efficiency, renewable energy, short-lived climate pollutants, decarbonizing transportation, natural and working lands and others. This session will discuss the myriad of measures aimed at reducing GHGs across the state, how effective they have been and what we can expect to see in California’s low carbon future.
