SB 596 (Becker) SB 596 requires the Air Resources Board to establish a strategy to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the concrete and cement sector by 40% from 2019 levels by 2030 and to achieve carbon neutrality as soon as possible, but no later than 2045. Per the latest science and rapidly worsening climate reality, The Climate Center is working to accelerate these goals. Read The Climate Center’s Letter of Support.
