Western Climate Initiative (WCI)
The WCI is a regional collaboration between seven U.S. states and four Canadian provinces, representing over 70 percent of the Canadian economy and 20 percent of the U.S. economy,
It aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 15 percent below 2005 levels by 2020. We have advised and supported the Initiative in the design of the most comprehensive cap-and-trade program designed in the US to date, covering 90% of the region’s emissions.
Funders: Various U.S. State Governments and supporting foundations
