State of California

Home to more people, parks and economic prosperity than any other state, environmental solutions in California serve as an important model for the rest of the world.

California has some of the world’s most ambitious climate targets. To achieve these goals, quick and drastic transitions in its energy systems are needed. In addition, California manages the largest state park system in the United States. Increasing wildfires and other environmental threats challenge traditional conservation techniques designed to protect its native ecosystems. The California state government and IoES work together to advance new frameworks for energy systems and ecosystem management, better suited for a changing future.
