Los Angeles Green Technology Industry Profiles

Los Angeles’ green technology industries were identified and analyzed to identify promising targets for growth and job creation. Three filtering criteria were used to identify industries with:
  • 500 or more jobs in the City of Los Angeles
  • Stable or growing employment
  • Average monthly wages in 2002 of $2,500 or more
Both the DWP and the WIB share an interest in expanding work opportunities in living-wage industries and occupations in the city’s economy. Further, both are interested in seeing Los Angeles become a center of production for “green” goods and services, providing renewable or less-polluting sources of energy, as well as technologies that help reduce pollutants from the existing economic base, transportation infrastructure, and residential communities. Growth in this segment of the economy would enable Los Angeles to improve its environmental quality, achieve job growth and gain competitive advantage in the “Green Technology” sector.
