Buildings both significantly contribute to GHG emissions and face growing risks from global warming. These issues are seen most sharply at the subnational level, with impacts of increasing extreme weather, heat, and disasters on lives, property, and economy demanding attention.
Policy and government action are key to accelerating implementation of solutions to advance decarbonization, sustainability, and resilience as integrated outcomes. This session will highlight strategies being deployed by leading Governors to scale change in the building sector, including policies and programs to support clean construction as well as reduce carbon from operating buildings. Representing state governments from several regions, these leaders will share how buildings policies, workforce development, and market adoption of buildings strategies are all necessary elements to drive an unprecedented cycle of action in this decade.
