Decarbonize LA

July 12, 2022

DECARBONIZING HEAVY INDUSTRY, TRANSIT AND TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS

The LA region aims to be powered 100% by renewable energy by 2035. To achieve this ambitious goal, it’s essential that LA, as a home to significant industrial activity - establish global leadership in the decarbonization of heavy industry and major fleets. 

Thankfully clean technology and policy innovations are emerging to drive electrification and the use of clean hydrogen at scale. 

The LA region can show global leadership by decarbonizing heavy industry and building an electric-powered transit and transportation system.

CityAge, in collaboration with Shell and Jacobs, will bring together the leaders shaping this vision with a digital event on July 12, 2022. A follow up focused roundtable will follow in September.
