2021 - Senate Bill 260 (Wiener, Scott), Climate Corporate Accountability Act (Dead)
Office of Legislative Affairs
Would have required CARB by January 1, 2023, to develop and adopt regulations requiring corporations with revenues in excess of $1 billion doing business in California to disclose their greenhouse gas emissions. The bill also would have required CARB, by July 1, 2025 to prepare a report on the greenhouse gas emissions of reporting entities, including estimates of reductions needed to maintain global temperatures within 1.5 degrees Celsius, estimate of emissions based on California’s current climate programs, and recommendations for reporting entities to reduce their emissions. Held on suspense in the Senate Appropriations Committee.
