“Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose and Santa Monica on Thursday joined 15 other cities around the globe in committing to significantly reduce the greenhouse gas pollution produced by buildings.
The landmark Net Zero Carbon Buildings Declaration brings together mayors representing 19 cities and 130 million people to declare that all new buildings in these cities will be net-zero carbon by 2030.
The Net Zero Carbon Buildings Declaration stipulates that cities will ensure all new construction by 2030 will use ultra-efficient technologies to cut energy use. Any remaining energy needs will be met from renewable sources.
The agreement includes a commitment that all buildings – old and new – will be zero carbon by 2050.”
