Workshop Background

 

The transportation sector comprises half of California’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. From 2014 to 2016, emissions from the sector – specifically from gasoline used in on-road vehicles –increased 4 percent.  This workshop is an opportunity for California agencies to describe the policies and programs that are being implemented to achieve California’s 2030 GHG target of 40 percent below 1990 levels, reduce our dependence on petroleum, and transition to a lower-carbon, sustainable transportation system.  The workshop also provides a forum for experts to discuss additional options to further expedite efforts to reduce GHG emissions from California’s production and combustion of petroleum transportation fuels.
