Energy and Emissions: Mapping the Impacts (Webinar) - 23.05.2017

eLearning

This BEA webinar is demonstrating how to measure the potential sustainability impacts of city policies and projects. Speakers are discussing how to find the estimated emissions reductions from policies intended for, or unrelated to, climate mitigation.

Linkages between emissions impacts and other factors, such as city health and cost savings are being discussed and mapped. Examples from city case studies and the buildings sector are being discussed with opportunities for participants to share experiences and ask questions.
