CMSC is pleased to sign on as a supporter of this year’s NESSBE summit! We recognize that climate change is an issue that affects all of us in a variety of ways, and that thriving, walkable and connected downtowns can be part of a constructive response to climate change.

NESSBE (Northeast Summit for a Sustainable Built Environment) is a biennial northeast regional summit meant to include a larger community of building professionals, owners, academics, policymakers, advocates and students in a conversation about sustainability in the built environment.

We have less than a decade to reverse current greenhouse gas emissions trends to avoid the most devastating effects of climate change. The intention of this summit is to explore the means and solutions for meeting this challenge in the built environment, while improving the quality of life for all CT residents, and lifting up our most vulnerable communities.

With Keynote Speaker Heather McTeer Toney, Environmental Defense Fund, Mom’s Clean Air Force. Learn More & Register
