The 2024 Getting to Zero Forum will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina. While the forum officially begins on May 21 and runs through May 23, attendees can also opt to register for the first annual Embodied Carbon Summit, a companion event that includes a networking reception on May 20, 4:30-6:00 p.m., and two half-day workshops on May 21 that feature opportunities for design building professionals to understand the embodied carbon landscape. Both the forum and the summit will take place at the Sheraton Charlotte Hotel in downtown Charlotte.

The Getting to Zero Forum is the premier event dedicated to building decarbonization. With a growing number of climate emergencies across the United States and around the world, there is no more important time than now for the Getting to Zero Forum. The event brings together the world’s leading experts to share best practices for reducing energy demand and decarbonization policies, programs, and projects. It is the only event with a broad cross-section of stakeholders focused on ambitious building efficiency goals and is an ideal venue for organizing both the policy and building communities to achieve zero carbon ambitions.

The event is expected to attract more than 600 leading policymakers, designers, building owners, systems manufacturers, and commercial real estate professionals. This year's program offers something for everyone, from foundational building performance standards to inspirational case studies and finding the funding to support your decarbonization goals.

The Getting to Zero Forum is co-hosted by New Buildings Institute (NBI) and Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI). NBI works to make buildings better for people, communities, and the planet by advancing scalable and practical approaches to eliminate emissions from the built environment and working with industry leaders to develop leading-edge strategies and technologies. RMI aims to transform global energy systems through market-driven solutions to align with a 1.5°C future and secure a clean, prosperous, zero-carbon future for all.
