Massachusetts’ 2050 Decarbonization Roadmap
How do we get there from here?

Tuesday, January 24, 10:00 a.m., on line

The Decarbonization Roadmap (December 2020) sets the ambitious goal of statewide net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050; i.e., any remaining emissions must be balanced by drawing down CO2 from the atmosphere, via our forests and wetlands. The Roadmap describes the “4 Pillars of Decarbonization” necessary to reach this goal. Martha Hanner will describe the “4 Pillars,” the progress, and the challenges, and then lead a discussion of what are the most effective steps we can undertake here in Western Massachusetts.
