Cambridge, MA: BEUDO: A Path to Reducing Building Emissions in Cambridge
Did you know that buildings account for 80% of the city’s greenhouse gas emissions? And that those emissions have been increasing? AND that there’s an upcoming opportunity to reverse that trend?
In the coming months, the City Council will be voting on a set of amendments to the Building Energy Use Disclosure Ordinance (BEUDO) that would require owners of large buildings to steadily reduce their fossil fuel emissions.
Please join us for a virtual community meeting on these important amendments.
Gaurab Basu, MD, MPH, physician and founding co-director of the Cambridge Health Alliance Center for Health Equity Education and Advocacy, will talk about the public health aspects of emissions and their disproportionate impact on communities of color and lower-income residents in our city.
Seth Federspiel, climate program manager for the City of Cambridge, will give a brief overview of the proposed BEUDO amendments. We’ll also have ample time for questions and discussion.
