Los Angeles ranked at the top of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s list of cities with the highest number of ENERGY STAR-certified commercial and multifamily buildings in 2021, officials announced on Wednesday, June 1.

Such buildings meet criteria for saving energy and money and produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions than typical buildings, according to the EPA.

The city of Los Angeles has 648 commercial and multifamily buildings that meet the criteria and are more efficient than 75% of similar buildings nationwide.

“The city of LA is leading the way by proving that cutting energy costs, increasing efficiency and reducing emissions, can also save money for municipalities and their constituents,” EPA Pacific Southwest Regional Administrator Martha Guzman said. “Congratulations Los Angeles for its #1 Energy Star recognition in reducing carbon pollution and fighting the effects of climate change.”

According to the EPA, commercial buildings across the United States are responsible for 18% of the nation’s energy use, and more than $190 billion is spent each year on energy bills. On average, ENERGY STAR-certified buildings use 35% less energy and emit 35% less carbon dioxide emissions.
