Our lives will change. From the way we live, what we eat, how we travel – change is coming as a result of the Climate Change Bill, SB 32, signed into law this month in California. The bill requires greenhouse gas emission reductions to meet very ambitious goals. And to meet these goals will require innovation, collaboration, and change. More details about the climate policy HERE.
We are doing our part to help you -- our business and government agency clients, prepare and navigate change. At Alta we are Making Businesses and Communities Cleaner, Stronger, and Safer.
