Partnering on the Path to Net Zero in North America

BCSE co-hosted a United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) side event in partnership with The Climate Registry, U.S. Green Building Council, and the Georgetown Climate Center that featured keynote remarks by Andrew Mayock, Chief Sustainability Officer for the United States federal government. Mayock highlighted ways in which the federal government is partnering with states and localities to advance national climate and clean energy goals.

BCSE President Lisa Jacobson hosted a conversation with Chair Liane Randolph of the California Air Resources Board, Autodesk’s Clemence Arto, and Schneider Electric’s John Powers who shared their thoughts on the role of public policy tools and programs to set a framework for economic development and investment to achieve climate action.
