Dear <<First Name>>,

At yesterday's Energy, Climate Change, Environmental Justice & River Committee meeting, we advanced an important initiative that will help us decarbonize Los Angeles’ public buildings. 

First, some background: 

In November 2021, the City Council approved my initiative to fully decarbonize Los Angeles’ public building stock, which *totals more than 550 buildings.* 
 

This wasn’t political theater either - we backed up this nation-leading proposal with a $110 million investment that I secured in this year’s budget, allowing us to begin this work immediately.  
 

Even with this effort underway, however, the City continues to purchase gas-powered appliances, equipment and vehicles. If we’re serious about building electrification and reducing carbon emissions, we must focus on the equipment in those buildings as well. 
 

This is why I introduced a motion - approved by the committee yesterday - that would require City Departments to create plans - and timelines - to end purchases of ALL gas-powered vehicles, building appliances and equipment. 
 

This is groundbreaking work and, by taking yesterday's action, we’re ensuring a comprehensive, coordinated approach to building decarbonization. 


With kind regards,

MITCH O'FARRELL
