Carter Ledyard Provides Support to Western Climate Initiative
Following completion of the first phase of Carter Ledyard’s work for the Western Climate Initiative (WCI), consisting of advice and analysis of alternatives for organization of a regional administrative organization to assist WCI’s members, WCI has asked the firm, led by environmental practice group partner and co-chair Clifford P. Case III, to proceed with the drafting of WCI’s organizational documents. Similar to the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) in the Northeast, the WCI is a collaboration of independent jurisdictions working together to identify, evaluate, and implement policies to tackle climate change at a regional level. Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation created to support development and implementation of RGGI, is also a client of Carter Ledyard.
