California’s Cap-and-Trade Program aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from industry in the state through economic means by charging corporations for permits to create emissions over a certain threshold. The California Strategic Growth Council is investing funds from the program in development projects that emphasize sustainability and reduced emissions, including a new collaborative effort in North Sacramento centered around the Twin Rivers housing project and a planned light rail stop that will connect the neighborhood to the rest of the city.

SGC Executive Director Louise Bedsworth and Sacramento State Environmental Studies professor Ajay Singh will discuss the economics of Cap-and-Trade and what this new investment will mean for Sacramento.
