IMT is fighting climate change by addressing one of the top carbon-emitting sectors in the U.S.–buildings. By collaborating with local governments to improve building performance and making the business case for efficiency in real estate markets, IMT drives demand for high-performing buildings that create healthier, less costly, and more productive spaces. Below is a collection of resources that demonstrate how IMT is reducing carbon emissions and fighting climate change through energy-efficient buildings.
