WEBINAR: ULI Net Zero Imperative - Accelerating Decarbonization

Tuesday, July 12, 2022

Virtual Session
12:00 - 1:00 PM 

About the Presentation:

ULI recognized real estate’s responsibility and opportunity to address the climate crisis and work toward net zero. And thanks to a generous gift from 5 ULI members, the Net Zero Imperative offers technical assistance and ongoing support to a selection of cities around the world to help them reach net zero. This webinar will discuss the recommendations from the City of Austin’s technical assistance panel and the next steps the city should take to move forward on Austin’s Climate Equity Plan.
