Massachusetts Clean Heat Platform

More legislation is needed if Massachusetts is to meet its greenhouse gas emission reduction mandates. This is especially true when it comes to the state's second-largest source of emissions, the residential and commercial building sector. No one bill or policy proposed in this session is sufficient by itself to meet these objectives. However, several complementary policies have been proposed together.
Over 70 climate organizations have come together to put forward the Clean Heat Platform: specific strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the building sector in a cost-effective, equitable, and timely manner.
