Municipal Net Zero Playbook Launch @ Zoom
Nov 22 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Join the Metropolitan Area Planning Council for the launch of our Municipal Net Zero Playbook!

Monday, November 22
11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Your municipality can reduce community-wide greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050. Our comprehensive how-to guide can help turn your climate commitments into action.

To avoid the most damaging effects of climate change, greenhouse gas emissions must be addressed rapidly and comprehensively.
Drawing on our years of experience working with cities and towns in clean energy and climate, MAPC’s Municipal Net Zero Playbook provides guidance and tools to equip cities and towns with the resources to tackle their climate goals efficiently and equitably.
The Playbook includes chapters on how your municipality can encourage zero-emissions mobility, transition to net zero buildings, implement climate-smart zoning and permitting, and increase clean energy supply. Every chapter is guided by a Framework for Action and Framework for Equity, which inform suggestions for community engagement, plan development, and strategy.
At this launch, you’ll learn more about the Playbook’s best practices and hear about how cities and towns are already using it to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in their communities.
