Learn what YOU can do to make buildings more efficient, comfortable and safer for everyone at the Sierra Club and Massachusetts Climate Action Network (MCAN) FREE better building codes webinar TOMORROW – December 11th- from 7:00-8:00 p.m.
Buildings are responsible for over half of all energy consumption in Massachusetts and 46% of carbon pollution. To mitigate the worst impacts of climate change, it is vital that we significantly lower carbon emissions from our buildings sector over the next decade.
The good news? In 2019, we have a huge opportunity! Eligible code officials across the U.S. will vote on the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), the code for new buildings built in the U.S. and beyond. This code is the standard that can mandate that new buildings be built with significantly higher energy efficiency than those we live and work in today.
With your help, the next code would maximize building efficiency and safety, ensuring that every new building we build is better for the planet and our wallets. More comfortable buildings are more equitable for residents everywhere, regardless of income. Join them on December 11 and learn what you can do to help change building codes for the better.
This program is a collaborative effort of the Massachusetts Sierra Club, Massachusetts Climate Action Network (MCAN), Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) and Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnership (NEEP).
