The Air District Board unanimously approved a Resolution to take strong local action on greenhouse gas emissions and develop a regional climate protection strategy.
The Air District action places the San Francisco Bay Area at the forefront among the world's great metropolitan areas in fighting climate change and pollution from fossil fuel emissions.
The Resolution:
  • Commits the Bay Area to an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, compared to 1990 levels in line with international and California commitments.
  • Kicks off the creation of a first-ever Regional Climate Action Strategy to achieve the needed greenhouse gas emissions reductions by 2050.
  • Directs Air District staff to develop a near-term work program for climate protection, to be approved in the first quarter of 2014.
