Green Hydrogen Visions for the West Conference: Los Angeles’ vision for hydrogen

Garcetti unveiled in April 2019 Los Angeles’ Green New Deal, which sets aggressive goals for the city’ sustainable future, tackles the climate emergency with accelerated targets, strengthens its economy and sets Los Angeles on course to be carbon neutral by 2050.
