As California moves forward to reduce the state’s greenhouse gas emissions and secure a more sustainable future, research plays a key role in informing which policies should be implemented. California’s SB 375, a regional planning and smart growth initiative, requires many of the state’s regions to meet a target for reductions of greenhouse gas emissions from transportation. Regions and cities will coordinate their plans for new development and new transportation infrastructure in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and create more sustainable regions.
