Evaluation of the Potential for International Sector-Based Offset Credits in California’s Cap-and-Trade Program

March 22, 2016 Technical Workshop

Background

Addressing climate change requires a comprehensive assessment of the causes of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (Assembly Bill 32, or AB 32) recognizes the importance of California’s climate leadership and engagement with other jurisdictions, and directed the California Air Resources Board (ARB) to consult with the federal government and other nations to identify the most effective strategies and methods to reduce GHGs, manage GHG control programs, and to facilitate the development of integrated and cost-effective regional, national, and international GHG reduction programs.
