About This Project

Geographic focus: statewide

Main activity: legislative and administrative efforts, state regulatory agencies

 

California is a leader in taking action against climate change. In 2006, the Climate Change Project was launched to assist the state in its implementation of AB 32 and the development of California climate change policies. Today, CCEEB continues to work to support California’s climate leadership. The project brings together a diverse group of organizations, and frequently communicates directly with legislative and administration decision makers. The project works to ensure that California develops an efficient and effective regulatory structure reduces GHG emissions for the greatest benefit to California. To protect the health of the economy, CCEEB supports credible, peer-reviewed, and transparent economic evaluations of state programs. The Climate Change Project works to ensure accurate and comprehensive emission inventories, clear and consistent reporting protocols and enforcement, and credit for early action measures, and verifiable GHG reductions.

The project works to ensure that California develops an efficient and effective regulatory structure that reduces GHG emissions for the greatest benefit to California.
