Under the leadership of Mark Gold (Associate Vice Chancellor for Environment and Sustainability), Felicia Federico (Institute of the Environment and Sustainability) and Stephanie Pincetl (Institute of the Environment and Sustainability and department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences) UCLA today issued the first comprehensive environmental report card for Los Angeles County. The county’s overall performance marks it as an unimpressive C+ student. This report card provides critical baseline information for the Sustainable LA Grand Challenge and informs the initiative’s goals to achieve 100% renewable energy, 100% locally sourced water, and enhanced ecosystem and human health for Los Angeles County by 2050.
