This week on “This Is CDR” will feature OpenAir’s own Megha Raghavan and Toby Bryce, who will present the Carbon Dioxide Removal Leadership Act (CDRLA), a legislative policy proposal that has been researched, developed, drafted, and advanced by OpenAir’s policy advocacy team.
The event will be live on November 16th, 2021, at 12pm ET. You can register from this link.
The CDRLA leverages the power of public procurement to accelerate and scale carbon dioxide removal through an innovative annual reverse auction mechanism, and is entirely funded by fees on hard-to-abate emission sources. OpenAir is actively working to advance the legislation in New York, California and a number of other states and jurisdictions.
Today Megha and Toby will review the general Carbon Dioxide Removal Leadership Act policy framework; talk a bit about OpenAir’s policy development process; detail the New York version of the bill, and how it aligns with NY’s existing climate law; and outline their next steps to advance the bill in NY, CA, and elsewhere — and last but not least – how YOU can get involved!
