E17 – Net Zero Senior Living: Maintenance, Renovation, and New Construction to Combat the Climate Crisis

Reducing carbon will help protect our world for future generations, reduce operating costs, and serving as a powerful marketing tool to potential residents who, more and more, see the climate crisis as the major issue of our time. Presented by an architect, mechanical engineer, and owner/operator of a net zero community, this session will present a toolkit that describes strategies for maintenance and procurement, renovation, and new construction of senior living environments to achieve net zero and even net positive results. Presenters will highlight examples of non-senior living projects and a recent net zero senior living community; present lessons learned; and share successes, challenges, and outcomes
