Green Team


LACOE's Green Team, a project of the Division of Facilities and Construction, is a vehicle for strategic planning on energy and resource efficiency and a forum to share best practices in support of AB 32 (lowering greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020). Representatives from a wide variety of LACOE Divisions regularly meet with the goal to COMMUNICATE, EDUCATE and SPARK CHANGE in the LACOE community by encouraging energy and resource efficiency.
