How Can LSA Assist You with Air Quality Issues?

LSA is pleased to announce two new additions to the Air Quality Team!

Michael Hendrix, Associate/Climate Change Specialist

Michael Hendrix has joined LSA as an Associate, leading our expanded Climate Change function. He has over 20 years of experience providing analysis and planning related to energy, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, global climate change, and air quality. With an educational background in Environmental Science and Air Quality Management, Michael is one of the State’s leading energy and air quality scientists. He is the recent recipient of the Association of Environmental Professionals’ (AEP) Professional Achievement Award for innovative air quality mitigation programs for projects that provide comprehensive efficiency and emissions reduction measures throughout the life of a project. AEP specifically recognized that “his commitment to balancing the need for industrial, commercial and residential development projects in the State with the reduction of air pollution is evident through his dedication to air quality evaluations and mitigation that significantly reduce air pollution generated by the expansion of these markets.”

Michael regularly meets with various State regulatory agencies, including the California Air Resources Board (ARB), the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research (OPR), and the Attorney General’s Office, providing guidance on how to effectively plan for GHG emission reductions.

Please contact Michael for any of your climate action plan needs:
