The Clean Coalition was a partner organization for Carbon Smart Building Day, which took place September 11, 2018 in San Francisco, CA.
The built environment is the largest contributor to climate change. It could become a massive carbon sink and source for good, if building industry professionals collaborate effectively to make new buildings zero net carbon in their materials, construction and operation, retrofit existing buildings to be carbon neutral in their operation, and ensure that the built environment fosters healthy, thriving communities.
Carbon Smart Building Day was a conference that inspired attendees to lead the built environment toward zero net carbon, and equip them with the latest tools, resources, and programs to help thrive in a zero net carbon future.
In attendance were architects, structural engineers, contractors, real estate developers, materials manufacturers, and policy makers who aspire to reduce the carbon footprint of their projects and make the building industry a big part of the solution to climate change.
