Path 2: Subnational Leadership

Loading the player…

Part II of this session will continue the discussion of what we can expect to see in California’s low carbon future. With the passage of SB 32 in 2016, California’s landmark climate action legislation has been extended from 2020 to 2030, but what is the future of its signature cap-and-trade program? Will LCFS survive the negotiating table and could the state meet the 2030 target without cap-and-trade? This session will also discuss what impact the Scoping Plan will have on California’s tools for addressing climate change and if planned efforts to prioritize disadvantaged communities will be enough.
