Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti unveiled the city's first sustainability plan on April 8, which includes the bold commitment to reduce greenhouse gases 80% by 2050 (below the 1990 baseline). With plans for clean energy, public transportation, and energy-efficient building, the targets will help California continue to lead on climate issues, while also improving the lives of Angelenos. A few key goals include: fully eliminating coal-powered electricity from the city’s energy mix by 2025, along with huge increases for solar-generated power and storage; zero unhealthy air pollution days by 2025; and transportation/road improvements to guarantee that 50% of journeys taken by Angelenos in 2035 will be by bike, foot, or public transportation.
