On November 10, Mayor Eric Garcetti announced the Los Angeles Better Buildings Challenge (LABBC) Drop 100 campaign, an initiative developed to save 100 million gallons of water per year by increasing water efficiency in commercial buildings across the City of Los Angeles. Drop 100 promotes high-impact water saving technologies, some of which are unique to commercial buildings.

“I’m proud to partner with the L.A. Better Buildings Challenge, and our city’s business community, to help our commercial buildings get even smarter about water conservation,” said Mayor Garcetti.

Drop 100 is an expansion of the Save the Drop campaign for residential property owners. The LABBC has partnered with the Mayor’s Office, the U.S. Department of Energy, the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator, an the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce to develop a focus on large commercial buildings, which account for 19 percent of water use within the City – that’s how Drop 100 came together. We are thrilled about it and can’t wait to work towards and promote all the amazing things that will come out of it.
