Edie Chang

Office of Climate Change, California Air Resources Board

One of the key points in the cap-and-trade program is that it provides an enforceable and declining cap on greenhouse gas emissions... We know we are going to get emission reductions.

As the Deputy Executive Officer for the California Air Resources Board, Edie Chang is responsible for development and implementation of California's plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions including the AB 32 Scoping Plan, the cap-and-trade regulation, and the low carbon fuel standard. She also oversees strategies to reduce emissions from freight transport, the air toxics program, fuels regulations, and stationary source programs. In her 20 year career with the Air Resources Board, she has worked on a wide variety of projects including implementation of the zero-emission vehicle program, preparation of State Implementation Plans, and diesel incentive programs. 

Edie received a B.S. in mechanical engineering from UC Berkeley, and an M.S. in mechanical engineering from UC Irvine. She is a registered Mechanical Engineer in the State of California.
