Event Description

The Residential Green Building Committee is focused on improving the housing stock of the Commonwealth by championing green building practices in our communities. Join us on the second Monday of each month to be a part of the movement.

Judith Holt from Judith Holt Design will be speaking on The Push for Net Zero, a discussion on her sustainability consulting efforts for the Audubon Society non-profit organization’s move to net zero for many of their facilities. The presentation will focus on the energy efficiency efforts and the renewable energy systems used to make the final push to Net Zero. The purpose of the discussion is to engage the committee on thinking of how net zero can be achieved at a greater scale, across the state.
