Free webinar on Wednesday, November 9 at 2pm, to launch UC law school’s new policy website to help combat climate change
Featuring Mary Nichols, chair of the California Air Resources Board
To meet the challenge of climate change, California and other governments will need to adopt a suite of policies affecting multiple sectors. Reducing economy-wide greenhouse gas emissions will take reforms in energy, land use, transportation, and agriculture, to name just a few.
Since 2009, UC Berkeley and UCLA Schools of Law, with the generous support of Bank of America, have been developing policy initiatives for California and other jurisdictions to meet ambitious greenhouse gas reduction targets. In California, these targets are legally mandated and based on what climate scientists tell us is needed to reduce the threat of catastrophic climate change.
Please join us for a webinar to launch the law schools’ new climate policy website, which contains all the recommendations from our work since 2009 on reducing carbon emissions in multiple sectors of the economy. The policy recommendations result from a series of workshop convenings with key stakeholders from the business, academic, and policy sectors of the affected industries. They are also contained in reports accessible via CLEE or the UCLA Emmett Institute.
The webinar will feature:
- Mary Nichols, chair of the California Air Resources Board
- Nancy Pfund, founder and managing partner, DBL Investors
We will also include a demonstration of the website, now available at www.climatepolicysolutions.org
You can register at this link to receive instructions about how to participate. Note attendance will be capped.
