Bringing Net Zero to 101 Cities and Towns and Beyond
MAPC’s 2017 Clean Energy Forum: Planning for Net Zero was held on October 11, 2017, at District Hall in the Boston Seaport District. The Forum was a part of MAPC's Zero to 101 Series: Bringing Net Zero to 101 Cities and Towns and Beyond and engaged over 100 stakeholders on how to take a holistic approach to net zero planning & strategies to start achieving net zero goals. The cities of Boston, Cambridge, and Somerville, and Towns of Concord and Wayland shared their progress and insight on working towards net zero goals. MAPC staff from the Clean Energy, Land Use, Transportation, Environment, and Public Health Departments introduced attendees to the variety of ways MAPC can help them to deploy multi-benefit strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Climate leaders facilitated robust and thoughtful discussions throughout the room with attendees on barriers, best practices, and resources for communities setting out on net zero planning.
