“Today’s results represent another successful chapter in California’s story of cutting pollution and moving towards a clean energy economy. The results also demonstrate that this is a strong, viable carbon market. California has been a pioneer for thinking big and putting bold policy into action, and today is another glowing example of that leadership.”
