Los Angeles’s Contribution to Climate Change

Los Angeles’s Contribution to Climate Change

Los Angeles emits about 0.2% of worldwide carbon dioxide (CO2) from fossil fuel consumption. Put another way, the city’s carbon footprint is roughly equivalent to that of Sweden.

1990 Benchmarks Angelenos emitted approximately 51.6 million metric tons of CO2 in 2004, down from 54.1 million metric tons in 1990.

Of that total, municipal government operations accounted for nearly one-third (16.9 million metric tons). Because the city owns and operates its own municipal utility, the vast majority of municipal emissions come from electricity use and generation. However, emissions from cars and trucks are the number one source of CO2 in Los Angeles, making up nearly 50% of our carbon footprint.

As a share of citywide emissions, municipal facilities and operations have remained stable since 1990.
