California Leading the Future of Energy
World leaders have embraced the challenge of long-term climate change – and for reasons that go beyond the obvious. Mitigating the human impact on global climate is sound environmental stewardship, but it also presents high-value investment opportunities. In the wake of the Trump Administration's plan to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement, California has sought a national leadership role in carbon emissions reduction. New investments and innovations in clean tech and green energy, moreover, are creating a path to a sustainable energy future. This session convenes senior elected state officials, business executives and conservationists to discuss California's future climate and energy policy.
