EBC is excited to present this series of webinars featuring projects and organizations leading the way in climate change adaptation and mitigation in New England. Featuring the nominated projects for the 2020 EBC Annual EBEE Awards Program, this series will focus on the forward-thinking and innovative projects being planned and implemented throughout New England.
The Boston Green Ribbon Commission collaborated with the Institute for Sustainable Energy at Boston University to develop Carbon Free Boston, a long-term framework for a carbon-neutral Boston that supports short-term action.
A carbon-neutral city:
- Maximizes Efficiency: Every building is a high-performance building; travel shifts from single-occupancy vehicles to public transit, biking, walking, and shared modes; and waste diversion is maximized;
- Electrifies Activity: A carbon-neutral city converts most systems that currently run on fossil fuels, such as cars, furnaces, and stovetops, to use electricity instead;
- Runs on Clean Energy: A carbon-neutral city purchases electricity that is 100 percent GHG-free, and it fully utilizes the potential for in-city renewable generation. To capture both the potential challenges and opportunities that will arise through implementation of these strategies, we evaluated potential actions with an equity framework.
Join us for this EBC webinar to learn about the long-term framework for a carbon-neutral Boston.
