Cities Climate Action Webinar: Focus on Buildings

Cities Climate Action Webinar: Focus on Buildings

On May 2, 2020, over 100 interested residents, officials, and governmental staff attended our webinar on how cities can shrink the climate impact of buildings. Buildings are an essential element in climate action plans because, in our country, buildings account for over a third of all greenhouse gas emissions.

During the webinar, Vincent Martinez and Erin McDade, national leaders in the field of reducing buildings emissions through public policy, laid out key policy steps for achieving the level of reductions we need in our building sector. Before their presentations, we were joined by Bellevue City Council Member Janice Zahn, who framed the important role of our local cities in reducing emissions.
