More Than an Inconvenient Truth: Making Sense of the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006


Environmental Permitting + Regulation and Land Use + Development

San Francisco


The California Global Warming Solutions Act created a new framework for the reporting and regulation of greenhouse gas emissions in the state.

Topics will include:

  • The current reporting protocol for greenhouse gas emissions with the California Climate Action Registry – including how this model protocol may be implemented in future regulations;
  • Administrative processes and timelines for implementation set by the Act; and
  • Available options for early stakeholder participation to shape this new regime and stakeholder planning to comply with its requirements
