California Climate Action Team (CAT)
CAT members work to coordinate statewide efforts to implement global warming emission reduction programs and California's Climate Adaptation Strategy. The CAT is comprised of 14 agencies, and is divided into 11 subgroups to assist the Air Board with their scoping plan.
The CAT is also responsible for reporting on the progress made toward meeting the statewide greenhouse gas (GHG) targets that were established in the executive order and further defined under the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (Assembly Bill 32). The first Climate Action Team Report to the Governor and the Legislature was released in March 2006 and is updated and issued every two years thereafter.
The Climate Action Team, in its coordinating role for state climate policy, has nine working groups focusing on the major sectors of the state’s resources and economy, and a tenth working group dedicated to research. The working groups have developed “Near-term Implementation Plans” for over 50 mitigation and adaptation strategies.
