Free Webinar: Drawdown for residential housing, June 21,
Event Description

Project Drawdown’s mission is to help the world stop climate change—as quickly, safely, and equitably as possible. They do this by advancing effective, science-based climate solutions and strategies; fostering bold, new climate leadership; and promoting new climate narratives and new voices. How does this come into play in the housing sector?

Lessons Learned:

- Describe the concept of emissions sources and sinks, the point of drawdown, and the major sectors contributing to anthropogenic emissions.

- Describe how buildings contribute to emissions in each sector.

- Identify one technology or practice in each sector where buildings contribute to emissions that can significantly reduce these emissions.

- Contrast the concept of global net zero emissions with a building-level net zero metric.
