Achieving Zero is a roadmap for government entities to enact incremental actions over a fifteen-year timespan to phase out CO2 emissions in the built environment by mid-century.
It will utilize the zEPI scale, fundamental building construction intervention points, building energy conservation and reach codes, and renewable energy applications as primary implementation tools.
Actions outlined in the roadmap will save property owners and building occupants energy and money, as well as create thousands of local clean energy and construction jobs.
The forthcoming Zero Cities Project – a partnership of Architecture 2030, New Buildings Institute and Resource Media – will help partner cities across the US implement the recommendations of the Achieving Zero report to achieve dramatic emissions reductions.
THE FULL VERSION OF ACHIEVING ZERO WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON
