Net Zero 2020:  What a Day!

The Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative held its third annual – and first 100% virtual – Net Zero Roundtable Conference, on Friday, October 23, 2020. 

This event showcased economic programs, clean energy impacts, jobs, training, and entrepreneurial opportunities for growth and activism that will help kickstart a robust, just, and equitable economic recovery while moving the region toward a carbon-free future. This conference was offered at no cost to participants thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and patrons.

The Collaborative’s Mission

The Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative’s mission is to reach carbon neutrality—or net zero—on Cape Cod and the Islands by enhancing communication, collaboration, and activism among organizations, programs and individuals committed to mitigating the climate crisis.

We do this by uniting available knowledge, resources, talent and tools to mitigate climate change impacts on Cape Cod, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and work toward achieving “net zero”-based goals for the Cape and Islands. We seek to create conditions to foster innovative, feasible, cross-sector solutions to the climate crisis.

About Us

The Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative was established in 2016 to help mitigate the climate crisis and mobilize Cape Cod and the Islands to move toward net zero.

Net Zero Cape & Islands

Our annual round table convenes federal, state, regional and local leaders to enhance collaboration, share best practices, develop action plans, and advance the goal of clean energy throughout the Cape  & Islands region.
