EIA Comments at California Air Resources Board

On March 23, 2017, California’s Air Resources Board (ARB) approved a strategic blueprint to reduce emissions of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs). This includes, among others, some of the most potent greenhouse gases in the world, hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). The approved SLCP Strategy outlines essential measures to reduce HFCs that ARB will examine as it drafts new regulations to meet the state’s 2030 emission targets.

EIA delivered oral testimony at the ARB board meeting.
