 It is the intent of the Legislature to enact subsequent legislation to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and adverse air quality impacts from cement and concrete production by strengthening and standardizing emissions disclosure requirements, setting emissions reduction targets for the sector commensurate with California’s statewide greenhouse gas emissions limits, and creating incentives to support the adoption of technologies and best practices to reduce emissions throughout the supply chain.
