Business Leadership Towards a Net Zero Future
Virginia has made significant steps to reduce its carbon footprint and reach “net zero” carbon emissions by 2050. This includes the adoption of the Virginia Clean Economy Act and joining the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, a multi-state market-based carbon dioxide emissions cap-and-trade program for the power sector.
To help Loudoun’s business community better understand these new standards and the costs and benefits they will impose, the Loudoun Chamber has assembled a group of industry experts to address the drive toward a Net Zero Future. These panels also will discuss how the state will balance these goals while remaining a top destination for private investment.
