arbcombo -- State To Host Updated AB 32 Scoping Plan Workshop-2030 Scoping Plan Furthers California’s Commitment To Curb Emissions

Posted: 11 Sep 2015 16:03:49
SACRAMENTO—The California Environmental Protection Agency,
California State Transportation Agency, California Energy
Commission, California Public Utilities Commission, California
Natural Resources Agency, California Department of Food and
Agriculture, Air Resources Board, and Governor’s Office of
Planning and Research are hosting a community workshop on October
1, 2015 to continue moving forward with the updated AB 32 
Scoping Plan, which reflects California’s new goal to reduce
greenhouse gas emissions 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030, as
directed in Executive Order B-30-15.   The meeting is open to the
public and full participation by all parties is encouraged:  

Date:               Thursday, October 1, 2015

Time:              10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Location:        California Secretary of State Building (Main
                        1500 11th I Street
                        Sacramento, California 95814

The meeting will build on the recent Governor’s Climate Change
Pillars symposia, to seek public input on the strategies for
achieving the reduction mandate. The 2030 Scoping Plan will also
help expand on the post-2020 GHG reductions outlined in the First
Update to the Climate Change Scoping Plan.  

Directions to the California Secretary of State Main Office
building can be found at: 


In 2006, the Legislature passed the California Global Warming
Solutions Act of 2006 (Assembly Bill 32 [AB 32]; Stats. 2006,
chapter 488).  AB 32 created a comprehensive, multi-year program
to reduce GHG emissions in California.  AB 32 required ARB to
develop and approve a Scoping Plan that describes the approach
the State will take to reduce GHGs to achieve the goal of
reducing emissions to 1990 levels by 2020.  

The Scoping Plan was first approved by the Board in 2008 and, per
AB 32, must be updated every five years to evaluate the mix of AB
32 policies to ensure that California is on track to achieve the
2020 GHG reduction goal.  The 2013 First Update to the Climate
Change Scoping Plan defined ARB’s climate change priorities for
the next five years and laid the groundwork to start the
transition to the post-2020 goals set forth in Executive Orders
S-3-05 and B-16-2012.  The 2013 Update also recommended the need
for a 2030 mid-term target to establish a continuum of action to
reduce emissions, not just for stated limits in 2020 or 2050, but
also every year in between. 

The 40 percent below 1990 levels mid-term target set by Executive
Order B-30-15 is critical to help frame the additional suite of
policy measures, regulations, planning efforts, and investments
in clean technologies and infrastructure needed to continue
driving down emissions.
