Combatting the climate crisis, making our communities more sustainable and resilient, and building a clean energy future

Climate change is an issue that requires immediate action, which is why Supervisor Horvath is committed to transforming Los Angeles into a leading clean energy County.

As a former Mayor, she supported the adoption of net-zero policy goals to set us on the path to becoming a zero-carbon city. Working with cities and neighborhoods, we can do the same across Los Angeles County.

The survival of our planet and human race depend on a reduction of destructive impact on the environment, and one of the best ways we can do that is to cut sprawl dead in its tracks. The County has already adopted an award-winning Sustainability Plan that needs full investment and implementation to reduce our carbon footprint and hold higher standards that actualize net-zero development.

Energy efficiency upgrades are important, and we also need to focus on developing new housing that elevates sustainability standards.

We need to invest in new standards and be mindful of transitioning away from fossil fuels, including properly decommissioning defunct oil wells.
