UCLA Green Building Symposium

Los Angeles, CA
Hosted By:
UCLA Ziman Center for Real Estate

The topic of this UCLA Green Building Symposium is "Resiliency: Managing Energy, Water, and Seismic Risk, Implications for Property Owners." The symposium is co-hosted by the UCLA Ziman Center for Real Estate and the Los Angeles Better Buildings Challenge.

Southern California is coming to terms with a new reality, one in which energy and water must be carefully managed and where the next major earthquake poses a looming threat to public safety. In response to these increasingly pressing issues, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti is releasing a City-wide Sustainability Plan to help prepare Los Angeles for the future. The plan addresses pressing local concerns regarding energy use, water use, and seismic safety retrofits. What should the real estate industry know about these policies, and how can it help shape them?
