The GreenLA Climate Action Plan details innovative steps for city departments and agencies to reduce GHG emissions and create a more sustainable environment. It also outlines a process to facilitate emission reductions by private businesses and residents throughout Los Angeles. The actions are designed to achieve ambitious reductions by 2030. Progress toward these goals will be measured and monitored annually, and appropriate adjustments will be made along the way. This plan covers CO2 emissions from public and private activities within the City of Los Angeles. It addresses emissions from major sources of CO2, including the production and consumption of electricity, and transportation fuel and natural gas consumption. The plan presents mitigation and adaptation actions to reduce CO2 emissions, including actions specifically aimed at reducing risks to public health. This plan presents a framework for confronting global climate change; engaging residents to create a cleaner, greener, sustainable Los Angeles; and growing the green economy. Los Angeles will meet the goal of reducing CO2 emissions 35% below 1990 levels by increasing the generation of renewable energy, improving energy conservation and efficiency, and changing transportation and land use patterns to reduce dependence on automobiles.
