  • Getting to Zero: Carbon Neutral Codes

    For decades, U.S. building energy codes have centered on kilowatt-hour savings in buildings. But urgency on climate change is pressing us to rapidly address and mitigate carbon and other greenhouse gas emissions from the built environment, which is responsible for 39% of operational and embodied carbon. Watch this one-hour webinar on the opportunities for states and cities to leverage their energy codes in order to maximize carbon reductions and minimize costs including a broad overview of best practice strategies and approach in action.

Buildings consume 40% of the energy and contribute 39% of carbon emissions in the United States. Zero energy and carbon neutral buildings are a solution to reducing energy demand and curbing the emissions that are fueling climate change. The Getting to Zero Forum is the premier event on zero energy and zero carbon buildings, featuring leading experts who are creating the market-based solutions that are driving a growing movement to define the future of the built environment. While the conference takes place over three days, this movement is 365 days a year. Won't you join us?
