Climate Now’s Net-Zero Cities events are community-based forums designed to foster learning, make connections, and spread the knowledge needed to equitably decarbonize our cities nationwide.
What is a Net – Zero City?
“Net-zero” refers to achieving a balance between the amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced, and the amount of emissions removed from the atmosphere – beginning with dramatic reductions in emissions, also known as decarbonization. For cities, that means reducing emissions from buildings, transportation, electric power, waste, and other essential systems.
