Description of Methodology for ARB Staff Review of GHG Reductions in SB 375 Sustainable Community Strategies

The California Air Resources Board (ARB) staff has posted its “Description of Methodology for ARB Staff Review of Greenhouse Gas Reductions from Sustainable Communities Strategies (SCS) Pursuant to SB 375.” The document describes the process that ARB staff will follow to evaluate whether an SCS will achieve the region’s greenhouse gas emission reduction targets.

The web address to view/download the report is:

The Sustainable Communities and Climate Protection Act of 2008 requires ARB to review each adopted SCS and either accept or reject the Metropolitan Planning Organization’s determination that the strategy would, if implemented, achieve the region’s greenhouse gas emission reduction targets.
