The District of Columbia Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE) held Carbon Free DC 2050 events this week focusing on how the District aims to reach its goal of carbon neutrality by 2050. Sessions included information on how three key sectors — buildings, transportation, and waste — will transform in the coming years to improve sustainability and prioritize racial equity. If you missed the sessions this week, follow-up discussions on specific topics related to buildings, energy, and transportation will be held next week. See here for more details.
The District also released its Sustainable DC Progress Report this week. This annual report tracks where DC stands on its commitments to improve sustainability across areas such as the built environment, economy, education, and health.
