Description

California Accomplishments in Addressing Climate Change

and the Role of the State in the Coming Decade


Join the Goldman School of Public Policy, BERC, and the Environmental Policy Group for the first BERCshop of the year featuring Robert Epstein, co-founder of Environmental Entrepreneurs and co-founder and former EVP of Sybase and a discussion of the role of California in addressing climate change.

Recently California announced the 2016 greenhouse gas emissions inventory. We achieved our goal of reducing emissions to 1990 levels four years ahead of the 2020 target date. This talk will look at how that was achieved – what is working and what isn’t. As we plan for a further 40% reduction by 2030, how can that be achieved and what is the role of California in the global context of reducing worldwide emissions in the developing and developed countries?

Food will be served.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information and to request dietary or disability-related accommodations, including sign-language interpreters, contact hannahty@berkeley.edu
