EDF Statement on Today's Landmark Climate Agreement Between Pacific Coast Governments

October 28, 2013

“Today’s agreement is historic. It not only strengthens California’s leadership on climate change but demonstrates a regional commitment to a clean energy economy. This agreement shows California is not alone in placing a cap on carbon, and it serves as a positive sign to other regions working to establish carbon markets. We applaud these governors for their leadership and their pledge to work together to develop innovative policies that lead us to a cleaner, more sustainable future.”

  -Derek Walker, Associate Vice President, US Climate and Energy Program, Environmental Defense Fund
