The Clean Air Dialogue (CAD) working group serves as a unique forum for frank and honest discussion about California’s air quality. The CAD looks at emerging air quality topics and keeps informed on the latest regulatory issues.
The working group has historically played an important role in developing policy briefings that have led to the creation of key programs in California’s air quality arena.
The CAD is made up of business members, environmental non-profit organizations, relevant state agencies, and key academic participants. Regular attendance from relevant state agencies, like the Air Resources Board, the California Energy Commission, and the Department of Food and Agriculture, enhance the group’s understanding of pending issues and provides an opportunity to interface with key stakeholders. Together, members look for areas where consensus exists and solutions can be put forward.
