In July 2007, Mayor Villaraigosa put forth Executive Directive 10 that instructed the City's departments to create department sustainability plans with EAD to guide their efforts. EAD is currently working on helping the City's departments to develop departmental sustainable plans by assessing its current operations including internal policies, procedures, programs and initiatives to identify and then create departmental sustainability plans. In the future, EAD will broaden that approach to a citywide sustainability plan. The citywide sustainability plan is a long term document that will guide the City of Los Angeles for the next decade in sustainability practices. It will help the City integrate environmentally sustainable practices into City policies, procedures, operations, and foster collaboration across City government.

The department plan and future citywide sustainability plan will cover the areas for

  • Sustainable Design
  • Energy & Atmosphere
  • Materials and Resources
  • Water Efficiency
  • Landscaping
  • Transportation Resources
  • Community Impacts
  • Economic Sustainability
  • Environmental Stewardship
