California’s cities and counties can grow local green jobs while promoting initiatives that save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The UC Berkeley and UCLA Schools of Law invite you to a free public conference at UC Berkeley, where some of the state’s top policy, business, and environmental leaders will report on promising ways to address climate change and clear the path to a local clean energy future.

The two law schools present this conference as part of the Business and Climate Change Research Initiative, which develops policies to help California’s businesses thrive in an era of climate change.
