As we continue to experience the devastating effects of climate change (flooding, drought, wildfires), there is more resolve than ever to ensure that our generational decarbonization policies are implemented in the most timely and effective way possible. Over the past few years, a number of promising building-focused decarbonization initiatives have launched and are starting to make a difference. Aggregation of resources for these decarbonization programs represents a critical element in achieving this success. During this session we will take a deep dive into the current state of these efforts, discuss the potential impacts and the challenges that lie ahead. We will hear from evaluators, researchers and implementers of initiatives covering decarbonization efforts addressing the built environment.
