At Urban Fabrick, we’re aware that climate change, if left unchecked, poses an immense challenge to our planet and our economy. That’s why we’re joining more than 620 companies and investors across the United States calling on the Trump administration and the new Congress to support policies to accelerate a low-carbon future that will help curb climate change.
The full statement of support, the list of signatories and an interactive map showing how widespread the business support is across the U.S. can be found at www.lowcarbonusa.org. The statement underscores that support for a low-carbon economy is stronger than ever: nearly half of Fortune 500 companies have targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, buy renewable energy and/or increase energy efficiency.
We want the US economy to be energy efficient and powered by low-carbon energy. Cost-effective and innovative solutions can help us achieve these objectives. Failure to build a low-carbon economy puts American prosperity at risk. But the right action now will create jobs and boost US competitiveness. We pledge to do our part, in our own operations and beyond, to realize the Paris Agreement’s commitment of a global economy that limits global temperature rise to well below two-degrees Celsius.
We welcome the new administration and Congress and hope that we can work together to build a healthy, thriving, low-carbon economy that will ensure our nation’s economy prosperity for generations to come.
Urban Fabrick assists project teams to meet, understand and design to new green building code requirements including CALGreen and the New York State Energy Code and a variety of local green building ordinances. We facilitate complex and high level green building certifications, onsite water reuse, net-zero energy design, sustainability master planning and climate positive development.
Urban Fabrick can help you to connect the dots and bridge many of the professional knowledge gaps that currently exist between today’s (business as usual) design practices and those required to successfully meet or exceed high performance (green) building code requirements, achieve green building ratings and make more informed, cost-effective and sustainable decisions.
