Green Industry In Los Angeles 

What is Green Industry?

Green industry, green goods and services or the clean technology sector can be defined as "activities which produce goods and services to measure, prevent, limit, minimize or correct environmental damage to water, air, and soil, as well as problems related to waste, noise and ecosystems." (organization for Economic Cooperation and Development).

Green industry can be divided up into producers of green technologies and consumers of green technologies (i.e. environmentally friendly companies). In Los Angeles, estimates by the Economic Roundtable indicate that there are over 190 establishments that are green. Countless others are consumers of their products and are thus environmentally friendly companies.

There are three main sectors of "green industry" that are the most likely candidates for growth:

1. Green Industry related to green building and construction.

2. Producers of clean technology related to transportation.

3. Green industry that will promote sources of alternative energy.
