Net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases: state agency operations.

Abstract

The California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 designates the State Air Resources Board as the state agency charged with monitoring and regulating sources of emissions of greenhouse gases. The state board is required to approve a statewide greenhouse gas emissions limit equivalent to the statewide greenhouse gas emissions level in 1990 to be achieved by 2020 and to ensure that statewide greenhouse gas emissions are reduced to at least 40% below the 1990 level by 2030. This bill would declare the intent of the Legislature that state agencies aim to achieve net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases resulting from their operations no later than January 1, 2035. The bill would require each state agency to publish on its internet website or other location, as provided, an inventory of its greenhouse gas emissions for the prior calendar year, on or before July 1, 2024, and annually thereafter until the goal has been achieved. The bill would require each state agency to develop and publish a plan, on or before January 1, 2025, that describes its planned actions for achieving net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases and an estimate of the costs associated with the planned actions. The bill would require the state agency to update the plan beginning June 30, 2027, and every 2 years thereafter until the goal has been achieved. The bill would require the Climate Action Team, among other things, to establish and maintain rules for determining and reporting greenhouse gas emissions inventory, review and provide feedback on plans developed by state agencies, and to assist state agencies in establishing interim greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets to ensure that state agencies are making adequate progress toward achieving the above stated goal. The bill would require the Office of Sustainability within the Department of General Services to provide information, training, coordination, best practices, and other technical assistance to state agencies and local governments on how to reduce their emissions of greenhouse gases in a cost-effective manner, as specified. The bill would require the Climate Action Team and the office, beginning September 30, 2035, and biennially thereafter until the achievement of the above stated goal, to report to the relevant policy and fiscal committees of the Legislature on progress toward achieving that goal, as provided.
