National Climate Conference Puts California’s AB 32 on Display

Climate Leadership ConferenceClimate Leadership Conference 2These days there seems to be steady stream of stories coming from Washington D.C. that are of interest to California, from national standards on trucks to new regulations covering existing emissions sources under the Clean Power Plan. However, the story treadmill runs in reverse too, as evidenced by the attention being paid to California’s world-leading climate program, AB 32, which is being fully implemented during a time of strong economic recovery in the Golden State.

In February 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), The Climate Registry, the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, and the Association of Climate Change Officers will host the Climate Leadership Conference in Washington D.C and California’s AB 32 story and success will be on full display.

At the CLC in Pentagon City, taking place February 23rd through 25th, hundreds of policy makers, businesses, and advocates from across the nation will learn about and discuss efforts that are leading the way on climate solutions. As part of that discussion, the California story – from cap and trade to the Low Carbon Fuel Standard – will be showcased and broadcast in a multi-hour seminar, connecting state-level solutions to national decision makers.

On January 5, 2015, in his state-of-the-state address, Governor Brown told all Californians that he is committed to our state’s climate program, and much more will be accomplished over the next 15 years to see it through. The CLC seminar on February 23, 2015 will demonstrate how California’s climate goals and accomplishments are of national significance. What’s more, EDF’s upcoming report on the first compliance period of the AB32 cap-and-trade regulation will illustrate how California’s climate goals can be met while supporting economic growth and building a healthier, more prosperous state.
