United States Department of Energy, Clean Cities Program

The Environmental Services Group of the Bureau of Sanitation (LASAN), by way of the Los Angeles Clean Cities Coalition serves as a clearinghouse for clean technology and alternative fuel vehicles (AFV) for the City of Los Angeles and the City fleets. The United States Department of Energy (U.S.DOE) Clean Cities initiative advances the nation's energy security by supporting local actions to reduce petroleum consumption in transportation. A national network of nearly 100 Clean Cities coalitions brings together stakeholders in the public and private sectors to deploy alternative and renewable fuels, idle-reduction measures, fuel economy improvements, and emerging transportation technologies.

The Los Angeles Clean Cities Coalition’s major stakeholders are all of the City of Los Angeles Departments. The General Stakeholders consist of government agencies, utilities, and non-profit organizations committed to improving air quality in the Los Angeles area. They initiate projects and programs that are moving Los Angeles towards a more sustainable and environmentally friendly City. Together, Angelenos are working towards making LA one of the most sustainable big cities in the nation. The Los Angeles Clean Cities Coalition’s major stakeholders are the entire City of Los Angeles Departments: http://lacity.org/city-government/departments-and-bureaus

L.A.’s first-ever Sustainable City pLAn

On April 8, 2015, Mayor Eric Garcetti released L.A.’s first-ever Sustainable City pLAn. The pLAn is both a roadmap to achieve back to basics short-term results while setting the path to strengthen and transform our City in the decades to come. By addressing the environment, economy, and equity together, we can move toward a truly sustainable future. The pLAn is made up of short term (by 2017) and longer term (by 2025 and 2035) targets in 14 categories that will advance our environment, economy and equity. To reach these targets, the Mayor is calling upon organizations, universities, neighborhood councils, community groups, businesses, and individual Angelenos to commit to “Adopt the pLAn” into action.

Clean Cities Los Angeles

Los Angeles Clean Cities Induction Ceremony, 1996

In February 1996, the City of Los Angeles joined the United States Department of Energy (DOE) Clean Cities Program by forming the City of Los Angeles Clean Cities Coalition. Clean Cities coalitions are required to re-designate their standing as an active Clean Cities Coalition every three years. The Los Angeles Clean Cities Coalition was re-designated most recently on December 20, 2012. Re-designation attempts to:
  • Reaffirm commitment from stakeholders, the board of directors, steering committee members, and host organizations;
  • Build momentum through quantitative evaluation and thorough planning;
  • Enhance the relationship with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE); and to
  • Inform DOE of accomplishments and funding needs.
The Coalition supports the voluntary deployment of alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) and construction of infrastructure to support.
