Climate Change Action Plans
Our attorneys have been at the forefront of the development of law relating to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as it relates to land use and transportation projects. We are fully knowledgeable about the requirements of California Assembly Bill 32 (AB 32) and Senate Bill 375 (SB 375). With respect to AB 32, we provide ongoing advice and analysis on CARB regulations to reduce GHG emissions; standards for measuring and reporting emissions; and the development and adoption of the Scoping Plan.
Many public agencies have engaged us as legal counsel regarding their programs to reduce GHG emissions, including land use and transportation policies. Our work on the development of local climate action and GHG reduction plans involves consideration of many measures under AB 32 and SB 375. For example, for the Port of Los Angeles, we advised on the development of a GHG reduction program to be used in CEQA documents for its projects.
