Public Workshop: Potential Future Changes to the LCFS Program

The California Air Resources Board (CARB or Board) will host a virtual public workshop to discuss potential future changes to the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) program.

The agenda will be made available at the LCFS Meetings and Workshops page prior to the workshop, and a link to submit written comments will be posted to the same page on the day of the workshop. 

Date:                 December 7, 2021
Time:                 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (Pacific Time)

CARB first adopted the LCFS regulation in 2009 and began implementation in 2011. The Board adopted amendments in 2011, readopted the regulation in 2015, and adopted amendments in 2018 and 2019. The regulation requires the reduction of the carbon intensity of California’s transportation fuels by 20 percent from 2010 levels by 2030. The regulation is one of the measures adopted by CARB, pursuant to Health and Safety Code Sections 38500-38599 (AB 32) to reduce California’s greenhouse gas emissions. It is designed to help clean the air, protect the environment, and drive the development of clean, low-carbon fuels.
