DEQ Webinar Series: Sustainable Buildings for All Part 1
Sustainable Buildings for All Webinar Series
Oregon DEQ invites you to join our upcoming webinar series on the Sustainable Buildings for All (SB4A) Incentive Framework. The SB4A framework was developed by a coalition of sustainability and equity experts and advocates. SB4A provides a template for local governments to incentivize, and therefore accelerate, the development of building projects in their communities that achieve high levels of environmental performance, social equity, and human and environmental health.
This four-part webinar series will provide an overview and some deeper dives into the framework, so local governments, industry partners, and community members can learn about the goals, structure, key elements, feasibility, and anticipated outcomes of the SB4A framework.
