Overview

Cities have always been at the forefront of creating good jobs and opportunities for businesses and good places to live for their residents. With the challenges of the climate crisis upon us, cities are now helping lead America with innovative policies to reduce carbon emissions, make buildings and transportation networks more efficient and expand opportunities for local businesses in the clean economy.

Please join E2’s March national webinar to hear from leaders on the front lines of climate action in our cities and learn how you and your business can help engage in this critical work in your city or town.

We’ll be joined by Columbus, Ohio Mayor Andrew Ginther, who is leading his city’s innovative and ambitious climate action plans to reduce air pollution and city-wide emissions with projects aimed at reforming their transit and buildings sectors.

We will also explore the work of the American Cities Climate Challenge, a major nationwide effort to expedite progress in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while growing local economies during a time of inaction from the federal government.

And we’ll hear also hear from a business at the forefront of building efficiency, Radiant Labs, on how climate action at the city level is helping expand the clean energy economy.
