Low Carbon Fuel Standard Sustainability Workgroup
This page last reviewed November 7, 2013
The Board directed the Executive Officer to work with IFWG, appropriate state agencies, environmental advocates, regulated parties, and other interested stakeholders to present a workplan to the Board for developing sustainability provisions to be used in implementing the LCFS regulation. The workplan included a science-based definition of sustainability; how the sustainability provisions can incentivize sustainable fuels; what provisions will be reviewed for inclusion in the LCFS regulation; the framework for how sustainability provisions could be incorporated and enforced in the LCFS program; and a schedule for finalizing sustainability provisions by no later than December 2011, unless the Executive Officer determines that such actions are not feasible and not appropriate.
