CleanTech Los Angeles is dedicated to establish Los Angeles
as the global leader in research, commercialization, and deployment of clean technologies
LA is a bustling, massive industrial hub where labor, business and government efforts are working together to make the city’s industries sustainable as well. With access to the ports, a strong, skilled workforce, a robust university presence, and industry groups such as CleanTech Los Angeles, the city is primed for growth in the cleantech sector.
The port of Los Angeles is living up to its Clean Air Action Plan commitment with up to 50% less diesel particulate matter (DPM) in Wilmington from 2006. Cleaner equipment, the Clean Truck Program and state air quality regulations have been a major part of the port’s success.
According to the Sierra Club Angeles Chapter’s Water Conservation Measures Scorecard, Los Angeles ranked highest amongst Los Angeles and Orange County cities, saving more than 75 billion gallons-over one-third of the city’s annual usage.
The world is in transition and is offering possibly the biggest economic opportunity of the 21st century. The question is: Can we grab it?
CleanTech LA members are leaders in the technology and business community that are developing next generation solutions to environmental challenges.
