Decarbonizing California: 2020-2050
Our Decarbonizing California: 2020-2050 conference at USC's Davidson Center brought together leaders in the state's fight against climate change to demonstrate how California can meet its climate targets while simultaneously improving our lives and growing the economy.


LA: First Major City in U.S. to Require Cool Roofs on Residential Buildings
The Los Angeles City Council unanimously passed an update to the Municipal Building Code in December 2013 making Los Angeles the first major city to require every new and refurbished home to have a “cool roof.” This policy recommendation was a result of Climate Resolve's “Hot City, Cool Roofs” in March 2013.

In Los Angeles, cool roofs are a great solution to reducing energy usage and improving the public health of Angelenos, especially on hot days. UCLA research suggests that by midcentury, the number of extreme heat days above 95°F will triple in downtown Los Angeles and nearly quadruple in the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys. Cool roofs can help reduce the risk of heat-related illnesses or death—especially for elderly and low-income residents.
