The Building Decarbonization Coalition unites building industry stakeholders with energy providers, environmental organizations and local governments to help electrify California’s homes and workspaces with clean energy. Through convening, policy analysis and consumer awareness building, the Coalition is pursuing fast, fair action to accelerate the development of zero-emission homes and buildings that will help California cut one of its largest sources of climate pollution, while creating safe, healthy and affordable communities.
Burning fossil fuels for heating and cooking poses a serious threat to our health and the planet
making buildings and homes the largest source of climate pollution in the world. Here in California, buildings are second only to transportation as the leading cause of climate change, yet we’ve had no clear plan to address these emissions. Until now.
Through the development of A Roadmap to Decarbonize California’s Buildings, the Coalition lays out an ambitious, inspiring and actionable plan for the state to eliminate building emissions in the Golden State. The Coalition is coordinating implementation of the Roadmap by working with policymakers, the building industry and consumers to dispatch zero-emission lifestyle solutions — eliminating the need for fossil fuels and helping the state to slash climate pollution. Moving California’s homes and buildings off of fossil fuels will improve public health, cut climate pollution, deliver cleaner air, alleviate rising housing prices and monthly energy bills, all while creating a tremendous export opportunity for the state. To get there, we are activating strong leadership from communities, manufacturing and government, in California and beyond.
