The Aeroplex/Aerolease Group has become the first VNY tenant to be certified in the City of Los Angeles Green Business Program, which provides free assistance to help and encourage L.A. businesses to become more efficient and sustainable.
Among several sustainability measures that Aerolease has implemented – including a recycling program and the efficient use and reduction of water consumption – they have become the first business to install a solar power system. With 4,000 roof-mounted solar panels, this new solar electric system will generate approximately 2.5 million kilowatts of electricity and reduce carbon emissions by 4 million pounds annually. These green measures, in combination with others around the airport, seek to drive responsible environmental stewardship and promote a sustainable business.
The Green Business Certification Program involves meeting program standards for resource conservancy, minimizing waste and mitigating pollution, in conjunction with environmental law and regulation compliance. The program incentivizes environmental best practices, and each certified business receives a City of Los Angeles Green Business Certificate, listings in promotional partners’ websites, green resource guides and more.
