Sacramento, CA – Speaking to hundreds of business and nonprofit leaders at the Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) in Sacramento, Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer discussed how California can balance environmental protection and economic growth. The discussion was broadcast live on the website of PPIC, an independent, nonpartisan, non-profit research institution.

Last September Mayor Faulconer released a Climate Action Plan comprised of common-sense policies that will benefit San Diego’s environment and economy. It’s expected to create new jobs in the renewable energy industry, improve public health and air quality, efficiently use existing resources, increase local energy production, improve quality of life and save taxpayer money.

Joining Mayor Faulconer at the panel focusing on climate change and California’s future were the director of the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research, the president of the California Manufacturers and Technology Association, and head of a Silicon Valley group representing companies such as Apple, Facebook and Google.
