Embracing the Green Economy

Sustainability is good business – and the LABC is leading the way.

In California…

500,000+ people work in clean energy

L.A. has more installed solar power than any other city in U.S.

California committed to 100% clean energy by 2045

One of the LABC’s core policy positions is that environmental stewardship and economic growth go hand-in-hand.

We are proud that L.A. is leading the country in solar power, green jobs, and water conservation — with a thriving economy and cleaner environment to show for it.

The entire state of California stands on the front lines in the fight against climate change, with the most aggressive environmental laws in the country. We also continue to outpace the nation in terms of economic growth. In fact, the entire West Coast GDP grew 32% between 2010 and 2018 while California and its coastal neighbors pursued ambitious climate goals and stricter regulation.

At the LABC, we understand strong environmental policies create sustainable, quality jobs that Californians can count on.

LABC helps pass the  CLEAN LA Solar Program, proving that environmental and economic goals go hand in hand. 

 The 16.4 Megawatt (DC) Westmont Solar Energy Project completed in June 2017 in San Pedro will produce over 28 million Kilowatt-hours of electricity every year, making it the most powerful rooftop solar project in the world. Project constructed by LABC Board Member Jonathan Port’s PermaCity.

Join the Los Angeles Business Council for a webinar discussion with experts from the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority on the current efforts underway to house and ensure the safety of Los Angeles' homeless population.
The State of California has estimated that 60,000 homeless people could contract COVID-19, with 20% potentially needing hospitalization. To address this uptick in hospitalizations, the State would need 12,000 hospital beds just for the homeless population.
In Los Angeles, Mayor Garcetti has authorized the conversion of 42 recreation centers into temporary shelters, providing 6,000 new beds.
The first phase of shelters included 13 locations opened up this past weekend to provide 1,600 beds for those at greatest risk. The County of Los Angeles, thLos Angeles Homeless Service Authority (LAHSA), and other partners are working to identify those most at risk for immediate placement.
