Carbon neutral houses and offices: only path to a carbon neutrality new building code, panel discussion, Wed. Sept. 6, 6:30 PM, Arlington Central Library.

Arlington County Board in 2019 adopted a carbon neutral goal for Arlington by 2050; about two-thirds of carbon emissions in the county comes from buildings, office and homes.  New homes and buildings must become carbon neutral in operating energy and in embedded construction  materials or the goal can never be realized. A building code that  mandates new carbon neutral buildings must be adopted first.
