Building Decarbonization: Why Does It Matter and Where do YOU Fit in?

August 16, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

View list of attendees.

The New Buildings Institutes’ (NBI) Building Decarbonization Code presents the building industry with an actionable tool to leverage buildings in meeting the climate objectives of cities and states. We will review this tool, present its place within a spectrum of tools, policies, and funding opportunities related to building decarbonization and discuss concerns and opportunities of decarbonization from an equity perspective.

Presented in partnership with: American Institute of Architects (AIA) St. Louis’ Committee on the Environment (COTE®), ASHRAE St. Louis (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers), International Sustainable Institute for Laboratories St. Louis (I2SL) and Missouri Gateway Green Building Council. 

Learn what tools are available and how you can implement solutions, what is happening around the country, and what the future brings when it comes to building decarbonization.
