Over the past year, the Climate XChange team has been producing forward-looking modeling to help state-level decision-makers navigate an economic recovery from the pandemic that also addresses the rapidly accelerating climate crisis. Our latest work focuses on Massachusetts, and will be released Tuesday, May 25th. The report will contribute to the growing body of evidence in support of investments that generate significant community and climate benefits. This latest research will also enable Massachusetts policymakers and advocacy groups to employ a targeted approach in supporting specific budget scenarios or funding packages based on investment benefits.
Join us as report authors Ruby Wincele, Jonah Kurman-Faber, and Naomi Shimberg share insights from the forthcoming study, Investing in a Better Massachusetts: An Analysis of Job Creation and Community Benefits from Green Investments. The analysis finds that an effective strategy for job creation and community development prioritizes clean transportation, housing, renewable energy, grid modernization, building efficiency, and natural resource conservation.
Our webinar will showcase the job opportunities, public health benefits, energy savings, and quality of life improvements created for families and businesses in the Commonwealth by green investments. The authors will also discuss how to make full use of the study’s extensive data for your needs as a policymaker or organization.
