Los Angeles Zero Carbon Buildings Goal: 100% zero carbon new buildings by 2030 and all buildings by 2050!

Buildings are our largest source of climate pollution and play a big part in changing carbon neutrality goals... to achieve a goal of making buildings net-zero carbon by 2050 and dramatically reducing energy use, we need to focus on energy conservation and electrification. To achieve these goals, we need to discuss what industry leaders are actually doing, where they are at and how they are working to accomplish it.
