USGBC Greening Committee

Welcome to the Greening Committee greening program page. The Greening Committee is working with USGBC-National and USGBC-LA to set forward three greening initiatives for Greenbuild 2016. This webpage is a one-stop-shop for all things Greening Committee related.

Mission Statement

The Los Angeles Greening Committee will work with the USGBC-National and USGBC-LA staff to educate the business and the hospitality sector, in close proximity to the downtown Los Angeles Convention Center (roughly 1.5 mile radius), about greening their operations. The Greening Committee will also participate in FoLAR’s 27th Annual Great LA River Cleanup.

Greening Toolkit

The Greening Committee has prepared a green operations toolkit to be shared with the Los Angeles business and hotel community in advanced of Greenbuild 2016. This toolkit is developing monthly with the input of the Committee volunteers. At this time the following resources are being used to educate and provide tools to local establishments for greening their operations.
