Join People for Climate Action to hear Vincent Martinez and Erin McDade, national leaders in buildings & environment, describe the work that their organization, Architecture 2030, has done with a few U.S. cities to address the buildings emissions challenge through public policies. They will share some commonalities among cities that they have observed.
Before the presentations, Bellevue City Council Member Janice Zahn, will frame the important role of our local cities. Learn specific details on significantly reducing the energy use and greenhouse gas emissions of buildings. The City of Bellingham’s Climate Action Task Force will report on policy actions their city is taking to reduce the impacts of buildings.
The webinar will conclude with a Q & A from 11:00 – 11:30 a.m.
Did you know that in our nation, buildings:
- are responsible for over 40% of our energy consumption
- use over 75% of the power on the electrical grid, and
- account for over a third of all greenhouse gas emissions
