Achieving Carbon Neutrality in Both Housing and Transportation in Ann Arbor and Nationwide

Did you know that housing and transportation together account for around 50% of greenhouse gas emissions?

To achieve carbon neutrality by 2030, we need to dramatically reduce vehicle miles traveled and make our buildings more efficient. Different types of buildings have different carbon footprints, but it isn’t just the design features of the structures that make housing sustainable (or not), it is also the lifestyles they enable. Dr. Reid Ewing from the Department of City and Metropolitan Planning at the University of Utah talks here about how to work towards achieving carbon neutrality in housing and transortation.
