California's growing green economy

See how implementing AB 32 and going green is paying off

Thousands of companies have benefited from California's decades long leadership on clean energy and energy efficiency. This existing infrastructure of large and small businesses throughout state is providing the products and services needed to fight climate change and secure California’s energy future.

Our array of reports, maps, surveys and interviews tells the story of how AB 32 supports real companies and real people across California involved in energy generation, energy efficiency, transportation, green buildings, and much more.
