Strategy for Achieving California’s 2030 Greenhouse Gas Target (Plan) builds on the state’s successes,
proposing to strengthen major programs, while further integrating efforts to reduce both GHGs and air
pollution. The 2030 target of 40 percent emissions reductions below 1990 levels guides this Scoping
California’s climate efforts will:
•Lower GHG emissions on a trajectory to avoid the worst impacts of climate change;
•Support a clean energy economy which provides more opportunities;
•Provide a more equitable future with good jobs and less pollution for all communities;
•Improve health by reducing air and water pollution and making it easier to bike and walk
•Improve natural and working lands.
