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.
