CLPP is a non-profit organization established in 2007 to develop and promote sound and safe policies to slow, stop, and ultimately reverse the buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and ensure that vulnerable communities are protected from climate impacts that cannot be avoided.

CLPP's work currently focuses on Maryland climate policy. In particular, CLPP concentrates on cap-and-invest and other carbon pricing initiatives that drive expenditures by emitters towards actions that cost-effectively achieve emission reductions. CLPP refers to these as "action policies" because they work in concert with sectoral policies to spur action to reduce emissions. Given the urgency of the climate challenge, what is needed now is action.


February 2024 -- CLPP releases a primer on Cap & Invest programs and potential issues that Maryland would have to address if it decides to adopt such a program.
