Acknowledging both the climate impacts of housing and the impact climate has on housing.
We support equitable housing outcomes, protecting those most vulnerable from the effects of climate change. The impacts of climate change are with us now as recognized in:
widespread wildfire seasons that are longer and more dangerous throughout the western US
expansive long-term drought
regularly occuring heat events in traditionally moderate climate zones
more severe weather events such as hurricanes, flooding, and tornados
BIPOC communities are often the hardest hit by these new climate realities having less resources, infrastructure and money to combat the impacts. Our work is now aimed at both the impact that new and existing homes has on climate change, through reductions in embodied carbon, fossil fuel supply, and energy efficiency as well as creating more resilient housing now to offset the climate change that is already having a negative effect on our communities.
