San Francisco’s Climate Action Plan has set a target date of 2035 for all large commercial buildings to eliminate onsite fossil fuel consumption. The State of California will ultimately mandate this too, with the California Air Resources Board targeting 2045 as their deadline for commercial building decarbonization. This mandate will impact the vast majority of existing buildings in the Bay Area, and it’s critical that property professionals and their engineering teams start planning now.
In this 90-minute webinar, participants will receive a thorough briefing on the regulatory mandates their buildings will face under the 2021 San Francisco Climate Action Plan and the California Air Resources Board’s 2022 Draft Scoping Plan. Our panel of experts will highlight the key considerations including lease structures, ESG reporting, and the potential capital and operating expenses of building electrification. The webinar will feature insight from case studies of existing buildings that have gone through the process, as well as a discussion with one of the top engineers in the Bay Area about the technical challenges that some buildings may face. Lastly, participants will hear from BOMA’s government affairs staff about the types of incentives and exclusions the industry is advocating for.
