CCEC encourages you to review and comment!
On May 10, 2022, CARB released its Draft 2022 Scoping Plan, which assesses progress toward the statutory 2030 target, while laying out a path to achieving carbon neutrality no later than 2045. Release of the draft plan triggers a formal 45-day public comment period. During the 45-day public comment period. The 2022 Scoping Plan Update focuses on outcomes needed to achieve carbon neutrality by assessing paths for clean technology, energy deployment, natural and working lands, and others, and is designed to meet the State’s long-term climate objectives and support a range of economic, environmental, energy security, environmental justice, and public health priorities.
