Massachusetts' climate policy puts it in the top 10 states with the lowest greenhouse gas emissions per capita, yet its median home price is 3rd highest in the nation.

How do we achieve net zero carbon emissions statewide or nationwide, while maintaining affordable housing?

Join us on our webinar featuring researchers and experts in the CRE field who will discuss the findings from their research on sustainable building and affordable housing. Discussion topics include:

  • Comparing the costs of building homes under Massachusetts’ new municipal opt-in specialized stretch energy code to the costs of building similar homes compliant with the current stretch code

  • From this, we'll learn how the opt-in specialized stretch energy code will likely affect housing affordability in Massachusetts

Don't miss out on this opportunity for valuable knowledge share on this topical research paper. Join us for our webinar hosted by MIT's Center for Real Estate and Wentworth Institute of Technology.
