Updated CalEnviroscreen 2.0 Will Help Direct Cap-and-Trade Investments

CalEPA released an updated version of California’s groundbreaking environmental health screening tool, CalEnviroScreen 2.0. The new version creates scores by census tract and includes indicators for drinking water contaminants, and unemployment rates. It will be used to help implement a state law (SB 535) that requires that 25 percent of the proceeds from the state’s cap-and-trade auctions be invested in projects that benefit disadvantaged communities, including 10 percent for projects located within these areas.
