Cutler Cleveland presents emissions findings to City of Boston

On November 8 Professor Cutler Cleveland presented preliminary results of his team’s research to the the City of Boston’s Green Ribbon Commission. BU President Robert Brown sits on the commission. Professor Cleveland and his colleagues provide technical analyses of the options available to the City to reach its goal of carbon-neutrality by 2050.

Researchers in the Institute for Sustainable Energy and the Department of Earth and Environment are assessing potential technologies and policies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions across the energy, buildings, transportation, and waste sectors in the City. Social equity is a key cross-cutting theme. This work is a collaborative effort with the City of Boston and the Boston Green Ribbon Commission, and it will inform the City’s upcoming Climate Action Plan update.
