As cities struggle with the pressure to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, better support green jobs, and combat hyper-competitive real estate markets, they must find new and creative solutions that address short and long-term issues. This includes creating a low or zero-carbon future, which requires a step-by-step process to retrofit our existing communities, and ensure all future builds are net zero carbon operations by 2050. This session will look at how we can create cities that improve lives through deep carbon reduction, creating co-benefits for both people and the planet.
