Mass CLimate Action Network (MCAN) and others are using this opportunity to continue our fight to make building codes better for everyone - which starts with advocating for a Net Zero stretch code in Massachusetts. A Net Zero building code is not only an important step towards achieving our climate goals, but will also make buildings safer, more comfortable, and more equitable for communities across the Commonwealth.

When: Tuesday, May 7th, 10 am-1pm
Where: 1000 Washington St, Boston MA 02118

Whether you're a climate activist or a town official passionate about changing the way we build buildings for the better, the BBRS needs to hear why a Net Zero code is crucial for your community. RSVP to join MCAN on May 7th to tell the BBRS why we want a Net Zero stretch code NOW.
