Architects Voice Strong Support for Climate Bill & Opt-In Net Zero Stretch Code
The BSA strongly supports the Climate Bill. In partnership with AIA MA, a letter was recently sent to Governor Baker. As we wait for Governor Baker to respond we must also be ready to advocate for the Climate Bill and especially the net zero code provisions. If this goes back to the legislators or gets vetoed, AIA MA and its local chapters will be looking to membership to share their support by reaching out to their state legislators.
Share Your Net Zero Case Studies to Make the Case for the Climate Bill
We know net zero buildings make economical sense and we need your experience to help us make the case to Governor Baker. The BSA is working with Built Environment Plus (BE+) to create a database of net zero projects that currently exist. Please share your projects by February 3, 2021 to be included.
