  • Public Symposium to Discuss California’s 2030 Climate Commitments: Cutting Petroleum Use in Half by 2030

    07/08/2015

    The Governor’s 2030 climate change commitment symposium will provide an open dialogue and public process to elicit new ideas for reducing GHG emissions focusing on the climate change strategy pillars.

    Potential topics for discussion are: specific regulatory measures, research and demonstration projects, incentive programs, and legislative strategies. Over the coming months, comments received will inform strategies being developed by State agencies in partnership with local agencies and other interested parties.

    This could include updates to the climate change Scoping Plan to reflect the 2030 target, Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund investments, and actions by multiple agencies to address energy efficiency in existing buildings, short-lived climate pollutants, forest health, water-energy conservation and efficiency, agriculture sector emission reduction planning targets, meeting federal air quality standards, sustainable communities strategies, and post-2020 Cap-and-Trade Program development.
