Part of NRDC’s Year-End Series Reviewing 2020 Climate & Clean Energy Developments
In the midst of an unprecedented public health emergency with vastly inequitable impacts across racial and economic lines, 2020 was the year many truly understood the need to make racial and economic justice central to how we fight against the climate crisis with community partners, including reducing the carbon emissions from our buildings. This renewed focus helped strengthen the value of the many wins we celebrated across the country. There is still much to be done to make America’s buildings healthier, cleaner, more affordable for all and to reduce their climate impact, but the momentum in many states is encouraging and we look forward to continuing progress in 2021.
