arbcombo -- 3/28/17 Workshop on the 2017 Climate Change Scoping Plan Update Posted: 14 Mar 2017 10:01:02
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is hosting a public workshop to present the 2017 Climate Change Scoping Plan Update: The Proposed Strategy for Achieving California’s 2030 Greenhouse Gas Target (Proposed Plan) and solicit stakeholder input on the Proposed Plan. CARB staff will present an overview of the Proposed Plan and present refinements to the plan as part of the development of the final Scoping Plan. These refinements include updates to emissions modeling and economic analyses. The workshop is open to the public and full participation by all parties is encouraged: DATE: Tuesday, March 28, 2017 TIME: 10:00 am to 3:00 pm PLACE: California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA) Byron Sher Auditorium 1001 I Street, 2nd Floor Sacramento, California 95814 This workshop is part of the public process to update the AB 32 Scoping Plan to reflect the Governor’s Executive Order B-30-15 and Senate Bill 32, which establish a mid-term greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction target for California of 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030. All State agencies with jurisdiction over sources of GHG emissions were directed to implement measures to achieve reductions of GHG emissions to meet the 2030 and 2050 targets. CARB was directed to update the AB 32 Scoping Plan. CARB and other State agencies are identifying the suite of programs, regulations, incentives, and supporting actions needed to continue driving down emissions and ensure we are on a trajectory to meet our mid- and long-term climate goals. The 2017 Scoping Plan Update Proposed Plan (Proposed Plan) was made available on January 20th, 2017. The Proposed Plan describes the actions the State would take to achieve the SB 32 climate goals of reducing greenhouse gases of at least 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030. It outlines an approach that cuts across economic sectors to combine greenhouse gas reductions with reductions of smog-causing pollutants, while also safeguarding public health and economic goals. It also describes the need to extend key reduction programs now underway, lays out new actions that prioritize direct emission reductions, and establishes the trajectory that will move the State farther along the path to a low-carbon future. The Proposed Plan includes input from a range of State agencies. It is also the result of extensive public and stakeholder processes designed to ensure that California’s greenhouse gas and pollution reduction efforts continue to improve public health and drive development of a more sustainable economy.
