VISION #3

ZERO CARBON BUILDINGS

Everyone should have healthy, safe, and efficient places to live, work, learn, and play. Zero carbon buildings are highly energy efficient and powered by clean energy from on-site or through the grid. Reducing emissions from buildings has a huge impact on the environment overall and creates good jobs for Angelenos.

City Targets:

  • Reduce building energy use per square foot for all types of buildings 22% by 2025; 34% by 2035; and 44% by 2050.
  • All new buildings will be net zero carbon by 2030; and 100% of buildings will be net zero carbon by 2050.
