First webinar in series that will focus on high impact GHG reduction strategies for local governments
Experts tell us that we have less than a decade to significantly reduce GHG emissions to avoid the most dire impacts of climate change. This means local governments must take aggressive action now.
KLA’s Climate Solutions Series will focus on the highest-impact GHG reduction strategies for local governments – including transportation, building energy use, energy supply and consumption and waste reduction. In these virtual discussions, experts in community-based climate, energy and sustainability will provide local governments with the knowledge, messaging and tools to shift the conversation from if we are going to address climate change to how we are going to do it.
Panelists will review actionable strategies to collaborate with the community and enact aggressive climate policy. The first webinar is free and open to local governments and their climate action partners.
Net Zero Buildings
Tuesday, April 27, 11:30-12:30 P.M.
Are you a local government tackling climate change?
Think making net zero buildings a reality may be out of reach?
Trying to manage pushback from the development community?
Hear from experts in Massachusetts, regarded as a national leader in energy efficiency, on how to overcome these common barriers to implementing high-impact, carbon-cutting climate policy on net zero buildings. Panelists will review strategies on collaborating with the development community and other community members to overcome challenges and enact aggressive climate policy on net zero buildings.Presented by Kim Lundgren Associates (KLA) and moderated by Kim, panelists include:
