Join us at our August meeting for a conversation with California Air Resources Board (CARB) Member Hector De La Torre. As a CARB member, he is a leading voice on impactful rulemaking that influences the business community throughout the state. De La Torre was appointed to CARB in 2018 by Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, and previously represented Southeast Los Angeles in the State Assembly from 2004-2010. 

De La Torre will be discussing the latest on CARB's clean air programs and regulations and impacts on Los Angeles, as well as broader federal issues that impact the state.

We'll also be taking a first look at the process the County is engaging in to develop their first Sustainability Plan. This process kicked off in early 2018 and the Los Angeles County Office of Sustainability is currently gathering input on topics from climate change, water, energy, land use, transportation and more. Laurel Hunt is part of the County's outreach team, and executive director of UCLA's Los Angeles Regional Collective for Climate Action and Sustainability. She will join us to discuss the current state of the Plan.
The Council will also review the Chamber status on relevant November ballot initiatives.
The Energy, Water & Environmental Sustainability Council focuses on actions to spur clean and green tech innovations, ensure cost-effective water and power delivery, and promote economic growth through sustainable, pro-jobs energy and environmental policies. 
All Council meetings are open to Chamber members only. Media and guests are only allowed with prior approval.
