The Zero Net Carbon Policy Toolkit Part I: Creating Incentives That Work

Local governments are taking an increasingly active role in setting policy and initiatives to reduce their GHG emissions, including adopting their own climate change action plans. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions that are produced by buildings is a critical component of combating climate change. Offering incentives, revising codes, and implementing various other policies can help municipalities reach their greenhouse gas emission reduction targets and collectively shift to zero building greenhouse gas emissions.

During this session, attendees will get a better understanding of a variety of incentive options and discover what Seattle, King County, Shoreline, and Kirkland are doing to create successful shifts in the market. This will be followed by a panel discussion from government representatives on the green building incentive programs successes and challenges.

Check out Shift Zero’s Zero Net Carbon Policy Toolkit for a sneak peak of some of the ideas and incentives that will be discussed.
