What You Don’t Know About Los Angeles May Surprise You!
Why will AASHE 2012, North America’s largest campus sustainability conference, be held in the City of Angels? Here are just a few of the reasons LA is the perfect location to have a national sustainability conversation:
- Through the Mayor’s Office of Energy, Environment and Sustainability, LA met the Kyoto targets for reducing greenhouse gases four years ahead of schedule; has taken over 2,000 dirty diesel trucks off the road; met the first target of getting 10% of energy from renewable sources; and put into place a far-reaching green building program.

- California Green Communities Challenge brings 10 communities in the state of California together to foster innovative ways to address carbon emissions and energy consumption issues. Learn more about the City of Los Angeles Action Plan.
- The Gold LEED certified Los Angeles Convention Center was recently welcomed by the EPA as a national Green Power Partner, and is now a qualified member of the EPA’s national WasteWise program!
- The host hotel for conference attendees, the Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites, was the first LA hotel to earn Green Seal Silver Certification, and was acknowledged by the Mayor’s Office for leading the way in sustainable hotel practices.
- And don’t forget our sustainable Host Campus partners to date!
