Business Benefits

LA Industry BenefitsThe LA Industry program creates a forum for stakeholders to actively communicate and provide feedback, which helps identify challenges that impede economic growth and compliance with their Industrial Discharge permit. LASAN utilizes its Green Chemistry Guide to provide a framework for implementing the 12 principles to support the people, planet and profit (3Ps) in sustaining community vitality. The objective is to promote life cycle thinking in infrastructure planning processes; reduce the generation of hazardous substances in building capital improvements, chemical design, manufacturing processes, product use, and ultimately disposal. With this cradle-to-grave solution, businesses are protecting air and water quality and the economic infrastructure that supports it.

LA Industry provides the business community with a sustainable business model that promotes a circular economy. A circular economy is about moving from a system of waste to endless resourcefulness; it is regenerative and sustainable, which allows viable business opportunity to successfully tackle environmental priorities, drive performance, innovation and competitiveness, and stimulate economic growth and development.
