Burning fossil fuels for heating and cooking poses a serious threat to our health and the planet - helping make buildings and homes the largest source of climate pollution in the world. Here in California, buildings are second only to transportation as the leading cause of climate change, but we have no clear plan to address these emissions.
The BDC drives action by working with policymakers, the building industry and consumers to dispatch zero-emission lifestyle solutions - eliminating the need for fossil fuels and helping the state to slash climate pollution.
Moving California's homes and buildings off of fossil fuels will improve public health, cut climate pollution, deliver cleaner air, alleviate rising housing prices and monthly energy bills, and create a tremendous export opportunity for the state. To get there, we are activating strong leadership from communities and decision-makers, locally and statewide.
