The most wide-ranging and profound environmental challenge facing society today is climate change. Silicon Valley is leading the way in innovating and adopting cutting-edge technologies and regulatory regimes, both critical for providing the solutions and the market certainty needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The Silicon Valley Leadership Group served as part of the Executive and Steering Committees for the victorious 2010 No on Proposition 23 Campaign to prevent the rollback of California’s landmark Global Warming Solutions Act – Assembly Bill 32. The Leadership Group continues to work with the other members of this successfully campaign as part of Californians for Clean Energy and Jobs, a bipartisan coalition promoting California’s clean energy future. We also continue to be a key player in helping ensure the implementation of AB 32 rewards efficiency, protects innovation and provides flexibility to seek out and implement the lowest-cost solutions, while also meeting our greenhouse gas reduction goals. In addition, the Leadership Group is increasingly active in federal-level advocacy for smart energy and climate policies.
