California and Mexico sign agreement to reduce GHGs

1 August 2014

On Monday, California Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. and Mexico’s Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources Undersecretary Rodolfo Lacy and Mexican National Forestry Commission Director General Jorge Rescala Pérez signed an agreement to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs).

The new pact seeks to enhance cooperation through a range of activities, including:

  • Aligning greenhouse gas reduction programs and strategies;

  • Collaborating on fire emergency response along the border and other climate change adaption strategies;

  • Improving air quality, including reducing pollution and expanding markets for clean energy technologies; and

  • Strengthening fuel and truck efficiency standards and supporting green freight initiatives.

The agreement with Mexico follows similar agreements signed by California in 2013 with the governments of British Columbia and the states of Oregon and Washington and China’s National Development and Reform Commission—the first agreement of its kind on climate change between the commission and a subnational entity. For the past several years, the California Air Resources Board and Québec have worked together to fully harmonize their cap-and-trade programs.
