City of West Hollywood

Beacon Participant Profile

“West Hollywood has a strong record of instituting environmental policies to promote a healthy environment that also result in a lower carbon footprint and per capita GHG emissions than national and statewide averages.

Additionally, West Hollywood’s urban form and access to public transportation make it particularly energy and resource-efficient. As environmental concerns have grown increasingly urgent, however, West Hollywood community members, employees, and elected officials have in turn expressed a strong desire for the City to continue to take aggressive  action to do its part to reduce its ecological footprint and remain a national leader  in environmental and social initiatives .”
