The Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF) was established in 2012 by AB 1532, SB 535, and SB 1018. The GGRF receives Cap-and-Trade auction proceeds which are appropriated by the Legislature and Governor for projects that support the goals of AB 32. Eligible investments identified in Statute include reducing GHG emissions through increased in-state diversion of municipal solid waste from disposal through waste reduction, diversion, and reuse. CalRecycle established the GHG Reduction Grant and Loan Program to provide financial incentives for capital investments in composting/digestion infrastructure and recycling manufacturing facilities that will result in reduced greenhouse gas emissions. A priority is to realize environmental and economic benefits in disadvantaged communities. These grants will promote infrastructure development at facilities in California that achieve greenhouse gas emission reductions by diverting more materials from landfills and producing beneficial products. Grants are targeted to build or expand organics infrastructure, such as composting and digestion, or rescuing food to feed people. Other targeted activities include new or expanded infrastructure for manufacturing products with recycled content fiber, plastic, or glass.

This data set is the same information as State Buildings Sustainability Metrics 2013 and State Buildings Sustainability Metrics 2014, just combined to provide an optional format. This data set lists sustainability metric data for state-owned buildings. This data is used to track state departments’ progress toward the goals mandated in Executive Order B-18-12. The metrics tracked in this set are total water use, total energy use, renewable energy generation and LEED certifications. The data set also includes building information for the 1722 buildings listed including, building name, address, total square footage and use type. This data is entered by property owners from each state department into the database Energy Star Portfolio Manager. Most data is obtained by property owner using the utility bill; however, some of the information is automatically fed into the database by the utility company.

This data set depicts the locations, nationwide, of service stations that provide alternative fuels. This dataset is managed by the US Dept of Energy. The Energy Policy Act of 1992 defines an alternative fuel as: Biodiesel (B100) Natural gas and liquid fuels domestically produced from natural gas Propane (liquefied petroleum gas) Electricity Hydrogen Blends of 85% or more of methanol, denatured ethanol, and other alcohols with gasoline or other fuels Methanol, denatured ethanol, and other alcohols Coal-derived, domestically produced liquid fuels Fuels (other than alcohol) derived from biological materials P-Series fuels

This dataset contains information on all non-confidential assets within the California State Fleet. The purpose of this data is to provide mobile asset information including sustainability measurements such as fuel types. The data is extracted from the Fleet Asset Management System utilized by the Department of General Services’ Office of Fleet and Asset Management. The dataset covers the timeframe from calendar year 2011 until calendar year 2014 and includes vehicle information reported by all agencies under the executive branch and constitutional offices

Public Resources Code (PRC) Section 42926 requires each State agency and large State facility to submit an Annual Waste Management Report to the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle). The report must summarize each agency’s diversion programs specific to their activities that are used to meet the 50 percent diversion of solid waste goal (as required by PRC Section 42921) for the previous calendar year. This data includes the diversion program activities within the annual reports for 2011-2014. More detailed historical data can be found at http://www.calrecycle.ca.gov/State Agency/Reporting/ . In addition, the first half of the annual report that contains agency and facility information, including disposal data for each agency can be found in the associated dataset SARC Waste Disposal Data.

This dataset depicts California's 2015 protected lands as compiled by the GreenInfo Network. The California Protected Areas Database (CPAD) is a GIS inventory of all parks and other open space lands that are owned in fee by agencies or nongovernmental groups for the purpose of maintaining their use as open space resources. CPAD includes neighborhood parks, wildlife refuges, regional and county parks and preserves, some land trust holdings, and state and federal parks, trust lands and forests – over 950 agencies own the 49 million acres of land in the CPAD inventory. CPAD is maintained by GreenInfo Network, a nonprofit organization, and is the authoritative data set for all parks and other protected open space in California – however, CPAD is not a replacement for official data for any particular land-owning agency or organization. The key focus of CPAD is land owned for the purpose of permanent open space use – CPAD is not the same as “land use” data which often does not distinguish between open space owned by agencies and private land owners.

Assembly Bill 118 (Núñez, Chapter 750, Statutes of 2007) created the California Energy Commission's Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program. The statute, subsequently amended by Assembly Bill 109 (Núñez, Chapter 313, Statutes of 2008), and Assembly Bill 8 (Perea, Chapter 401, Statutes of 2013) authorizes the Energy Commission to develop and deploy alternative and renewable fuels and advanced transportation technologies to help attain the state's climate change policies. The Energy Commission has an annual program budget of approximately $100 million to support projects that: Develop and improve alternative and renewable low-carbon fuels. Optimize alternative and renewable fuels for existing and developing engine technologies. Produce alternative and renewable low-carbon fuels in California. Decrease, on a full fuel cycle basis, the overall impact and carbon footprint of alternative and renewable fuels and increase sustainability. Expand fuel infrastructure, fueling stations, and equipment. Improve light-, medium-, and heavy-duty vehicle technologies. Retrofit medium- and heavy-duty on-road and non-road vehicle fleets. Expand infrastructure connected with existing fleets, public transit, and transportation corridors. Establish workforce training programs, conduct public education and promotion, and create technology centers. The statute allows the Energy Commission to use grants, loans, loan guarantees, revolving loans, and other appropriate measures. Eligible recipients include: public agencies, private businesses, public-private partnerships, vehicle and technology consortia, workforce training partnerships and collaboratives, fleet owners, consumers, recreational boaters, and academic institutions. The Energy Commission must prepare and adopt an Investment Plan and convene an Advisory Committee to assist in preparing the Investment Plan.
