Massachusetts set a climate goal to reach carbon neutrality by 2050. But what does “net zero” really mean, and how will the Commonwealth achieve this? The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) developed the Municipal Net Zero Playbook, an interdisciplinary tool for municipal planners, energy/sustainability staff, and volunteers that seek to empower cities and towns to implement net zero actions within their communities. Brooks Winner, MAPC’s Senior Clean Energy Specialist, will explain how these resources will help local net zero action implementers understand their role in advancing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions and advocating for critical local and state level policy changes.
