    About this Event

    "By taking a “street-wise” common-sense approach to high performance design strategies and comparing them to the expensive and maintenance intensive "green gizmos" approach being promoted by most, I will present to and help the participant critically determine what works - what is effective and long-lasting - and what may simply be 'hype' of the latest 'fad' product or method."

    This is a webinar on Startmeeting.com, with 1 CEU available.

    Speaker:

    Peter Pfeiffer is a professional Architect, Building Scientist, Interior Designer, Property Manager and licensed Texas Real Estate professional practicing throughout North America.

Residential Architect magazine cited him as one of the ten most influential residential architects of the decade. In 2019 Peter was awarded the Green “Superhero” of the year by Green Builder magazine.

    IMPLEMENTING CLIMATE ACTION
    Discussion with Texas Cities

    Thursday, November 19th

    Online meeting 

    3:00 PM - 4:30 PM



    About the Event:

    In 2017, six Texas cities -- including Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio -- signed onto the Climate Mayors’ National Climate Agreement in support of the Paris Agreement and its international emission reduction targets set in 2016 and the goal to keep warming at or below 1.5 degrees Celsius.  Additionally, environmental injustices of the past are being recognized and solutions created to address them, placing equity at the center of this effort towards a more resilient future for all.

    To fulfill this commitment, each is creating and implementing a climate action and adaptation plan with the help of nonprofit and academic institutions, private sector experts, and community input.  To date implementation of these plans has begun in San Antonio, Houston, and Dallas.  The update to Austin’s existing plan (2014) is due later this summer as well as one from El Paso later this year.

    Each of these plans include multiple strategies to address issues across the spectrum of a city's operations, investments, and infrastructure.  This discussion will focus on implementing those strategies involving the core competencies of USGBC Texas and our members.


    Climate Action Plans:

    Austin:  Community Climate Plan Update
    Dallas: Comprehensive Environmental & Climate Action Plan
    Houston: Houston Climate Action Plan
    San Antonio: Climate Action &  Adaptation Plan: SA Climate Ready
