I present the benchmark measurement of AGN clustering in the local universe with the all-sky Swift-BAT survey. The hard X-ray selection (14-195 keV) allows for the detection of some of the most obscured AGN, providing the largest, most unbiased sample of local AGN to date. We derive for the first time the halo occupation distribution (HOD) of the sample in various bins of black hole mass, accretion rate, and obscuration. In doing so, we characterize the cosmic environment of growing supermassive black holes with unprecedented precision, and determine which black hole parameters depend on environment. We then compare our results to the current evolutionary models of AGN.
