Los Angeles City Councilwoman Nithya Raman, 4th District, introduced two motions last month targeted at reducing emissions produced by the city government of Los Angeles.
Raman is chair of the council’s Information Technology and General Services Committee, which oversees city-owned buildings, equipment and supplies.
The first motion instructs the General Services Department to work with other city departments to begin assessing costs, timeline and strategy for retrofitting prioritized city-owned buildings and achieving net-zero energy use. The motion proposes that existing energy and water audits on municipal properties could help identify which buildings produce the most emissions, and therefore could benefit the most from retrofitting.
Her second motion instructs the city to begin implementing the 100% zero-emission vehicle procurement requirement from the city’s Green New Deal and to explore new charging infrastructure for the municipal fleet. L.A. currently commands a fleet of roughly 13,000 vehicles, about 900 of which are electric.
