Geographic focus: statewide
Main activity: legislative and administrative efforts, state regulatory agencies
In 2006, CCEEB launched the Climate Change Project to assist the state in its implementation of AB 32 and the development of California’s climate change policies. Today, the project brings together a diverse group of organizations, and routinely communicates directly with legislative and administrative decision makers.
The Climate Change Project works to ensure that the state develops an efficient and effective regulatory structure that reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in California. To protect the health of the economy, CCEEB supports credible and transparent economic evaluations of state programs. The Project works toward the success of California’s cap-and-trade program, strategic use of auction proceeds to reduce GHG emissions, the state’s complementary climate policies and Sustainable Community Strategies, and the development of consistent and comprehensive emission inventories. CCEEB represents project members at numerous proceedings and in stakeholder groups, including the Joint Legislative Committee on Climate Change Policies.
