Join the effort
Drawing down our carbon emissions and transitioning our region to a net-zero economy is no small task. To drive down the 63% of our greenhouse gas emissions attributed to buildings, we are mobilizing a coalition that is multi-disciplinary, culturally inclusive, and outcome-oriented. From building owners to lenders, contractors to public officials, utility providers to tenants- we need to come together to support a healthy and resilient Kansas City that benefits current and future generations.
We believe that convening a diverse community of private, public, non-profit, and community leaders is just the start. With your support, we hope to develop energy-efficiency financing tools that address hard to reach markets, create technical assistance programs to guide building owners, and seek out BIPOC-led partnerships that can allow communities of color to define our built environment for the next century.
Join us and let's work together to achieve Zero Barriers to Net-Zero!
