The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA), on behalf of the California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA), developed California Communities Environmental Health Screening Tool: CalEnviroScreen Version 2.0 (CalEnviroScreen 2.0). CalEnviroScreen is a screening methodology that can be used to help identify California communities that are disproportionately burdened by multiple sources of pollution.CalEPA has used the tool to designate California communities as disadvantaged (link is external) pursuant to Senate Bill 535.

Surface water toxicity data from the California Environmental Data Exchange Network (CEDEN). CEDEN is the California State Water Board's data system for surface water quality in California, and seeks to include all available statewide data (such as that produced by research and volunteer organizations). Data in CEDEN include field, sediment and water column data collected from freshwater, estuarine, and marine environments. Examples of data in CEDEN come from laboratory, physical and biological analyses and include data types associated with chemical, toxicological, field, bioassessment, invertebrate, fish, and bacteriological assay assessments.

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 data set lists sustainability metric data for state-owned buildings. These data are 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. These data are entered by property owners from each state department into the database Energy Star Portfolio Manager. Most data are 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

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.

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.
