A report commissioned by the city of Boston, Carbon Free Boston, lays out steps the city can take to meet its long-term goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2050.
The report says to meet its goal, Boston must focus on three overarching strategies: deepening energy efficiency while reducing demand, electrifying as much as possible and purchasing 100% clean energy. Specific steps include performing energy retrofits on buildings, implementing a $5 congestion fee for downtown motorists, free or reduced-fare transit and adding electric vehicle infrastructure.
Carbon Free Boston will influence updates to the city’s Climate Action Plan this year.
