About Us

The Office of Sustainability and the Environment is responsible for developing and implementing policy initiatives that promote local environmental, economic, and social sustainability and integrating resource management, conservation, and sustainability practices with ongoing City operations. Regulatory activities are related to hazardous materials and waste site cleanup, consumer awareness, ozone-depleting compounds, water conserving plumbing fixtures, urban runoff management, leaf blowers, plastic bags and non-recyclable food service containers. 

Additionally, the Office oversees the implementation of the Solar Santa Monica program that seeks to achieve energy self-sufficiency by integrating energy efficiency and solar in most of Santa Monica’s buildings, offers water efficiency programs to residents and businesses, provides assistance to the public with all aspects of green building, and provides sustainability training to residents, students and businesses. The Office also manages the Household and Small Business Hazardous Waste program for the safe recycling and disposal of hazardous wastes.
