Action Now: Accelerating Pathways to Decarbonization - A Zoom Webinar 'Conference'

Zoom Webinar - registration information below


For many years, our focus as a professional association has been on reducing or eliminating operating carbon from new buildings. But the significant scale and urgent timeframe of our climate crisis demand interventions that are broad and immediate, and that recognize decarbonization is directly correlated to health, safety, and equity in our communities.

Considering: 1) Reducing embodied carbon in new construction, including the construction process; 2) Electrification of buildings; and 3) Retrofitting existing buildings, this year’s thought leadership summit will explore high-impact actions in policy and practice that make actionable differences in atmospheric carbon over the next five years.

What are the data-driven interventions that will pay the highest dividends immediately, and what will position us to stay on the path to 2030 targets and net-zero 2050? What are the regulatory and financial frameworks necessary to support this scale and urgency?



Four (4) live Zoom webinars will take place on Tuesday, April 21, 2020 between 8:30AM – 5:00 PM Pacific Time (10:30AM – 7:00 Central Time).

Join us online to learn from thought leaders and identify immediate actions we can take to accelerate decarbonization in the built environment. Find the full program schedule and speaker bios here! (all sessions/speakers subject to change)

The deadline to register is 12:00 p.m. PST/2:00 p.m. CST on April 20, 2020.
