Dairy and livestock are responsible for over half of California’s methane emissions. Improved dairy manure management offers significant, near-term potential to achieve reductions in the State’s methane emissions, and potential dairy and livestock enteric emissions reduction technologies offer longer-term potential for addition greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions. In response to this significant contribution to the State's emissions and the requirement of Senate Bill (SB) 1383 to work with stakeholders to identify barriers to dairy and livestock GHG emissions reduction projects, the California Air Resources Board, California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA), California Energy Commission, and California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) convened a Dairy and Livestock GHG Emissions Working Group (Working Group).
