ABOUT NESSBE

 

NESSBE (Northeast Summit for a Sustainable Built Environment) is a biennial northeast regional summit meant to include a larger community of building professionals, owners, academics, policymakers, advocates and students in a conversation about sustainability in the built environment. 

NESSBE organizers are the Connecticut Green Building Council (CTGBC) and the Connecticut Living Future Collaborative (CTLFC)

We have less than a decade to reverse current greenhouse gas emissions trends to avoid the most devastating effects of climate change. The intention of this summit is to explore the means and solutions for meeting this challenge in the built environment, while improving the quality of life for all CT residents, and lifting up our most vulnerable communities.

The summit goals are to:
•    Accelerate the sustainable transformation of the built environment
•    Educate Legislators and Advocates
•    Convene partner organizations
•    Understand the current status of climate action in CT
•    Learn from policy precedents from other jurisdictions
•    Define barriers and brainstorm solutions
•    Highlight and promote GC3 recommendations

The summit themes are:

•    Equity and environmental justice

•    Embodied carbon

•    Zero energy/ building electrification

•    Policy engagement and advocacy

•    Affordable housing and planning

•    Healthy places - materials, nature, air quality

•    Resilience and adaptation
