Long Beach Climate Action and Adaptation Plan Business Survey
The City of Long Beach is projected to be vulnerable to climate impacts such as sea level rise and coastal flooding, precipitation-based flooding, extreme heat, drought, and poor air quality. Polluting emissions (known as greenhouse gases (GHGs) produced in Long Beach come from 2 main sources—transportation (54%) and energy used in the buildings where we work and live (40%). The remaining 4% of emissions come from waste. To prepare for and reduce the impacts of climate change, Long Beach is preparing its first-ever Climate Action and Adaptation Plan. The actions that will be included in this Plan aim to make Long Beach a low-carbon, climate-resilient city with a vibrant economy that is supported by environmentally sustainable businesses. Your responses will inform the Plan and help us understand how the City can best support you in greening your business operations while also improving productivity and continuity, enhancing your business’s public image, and reducing your costs.
