LA’s Green New Deal, released by Mayor Garcetti in April 2019, sets a global model for upholding and exceeding the Paris Climate Agreement by prioritizing urgency, equity, and prosperity. Uniquely, the city of Los Angeles runs the largest municipally owned electricity and water utility in the country, the second busiest airport in the country, and the largest and busiest container port in the Western Hemisphere. Come learn about how the second largest city in the country, and the third largest metropolitan center of the world, is operating on the global stage on climate action while pursuing the ‘five zeros’ (zero carbon grid, zero carbon buildings, zero carbon transportation, zero waste, and zero wasted water) at home. Further, learn about how Los Angeles is ensuring a recovery from the COVID-19 crisis reinforces rather than delays these goals.
