April 1, 2021—For the last week, energy and environmental industry groups have been participating in Net Zero Buildings Week , a social media promotion running from March 29-April 2, to showcase zero energy and carbon neutral resources. We know these resources are readily available across a number of organizations and aim to collectively broaden the audience who is accessing these tools and information by sharing via social media channels.
Over 60 organizations have contributed guides, research, case studies, webinars and other critical resources at #NetZeroNow to help make this practice a reality. The week will culminate with a Live Twitter Chat on Friday, April 2 at 1 p.m. EST. The #NetZeroNowChat is hosted by World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and will be moderated by the WBCSD NA’s Executive Director Bill Sisson. Media are invited to follow along and add their voice to the conversation. Panelists include:
