We are proud to announce that Liberty Hill Foundation is an official, Certified City of Los Angeles Green Business, an appointment given by the Los Angeles Community College District's (LACCD)  City of Los Angeles Green Business Program.  At Liberty Hill we strive to be as sustainable as possible in everything we do, and one of our main focuses is Environmental Justice.

In order to be considered a Certified City of LA Green Business, applicants must meet the program standards and be in compliance with all applicable environmental regulations.

LA Green Business program standards are developed by program staff with input from industry experts, utility companies, pollution prevention professionals, City inspectors and trade associations.

Below is a brief list of the current business sector standards for the Los Angeles Green Business Program:

  • Reduction in Energy, Water and Waste Bills.
  • Reduction in pollution to the local environment.
  • Increase/replacement in purchasing with "Greener" products.
  • In some cases, an increase in revenue with new sustainable products, additions to the menu or other initiatives.
  • Other initiatives recognized by Los Angeles Green Business (LAGB) staff.

This is a more rigorous compliance list of business sector standards that we've met.

Here are some of examples of how Liberty Hill works to stay green in our office space:

  • Staff incentives for not driving to work
  • Telecommuting options
  • Waste free point-of-use water coolers
  • Recycled printing materials and supplies
  • Environmental justice mission

And we’re also lucky that the building that houses our office has some energy saving practices as well:

  • Single stream recycling
  • Environmentally friendly paints and cleaning supplies
  • Water-conserving landscaping
