FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2021 – Virtual
8:30am – 4:30pm

The Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative, partners, and sponsors are pleased to present the Climate Collaborative’s fourth annual and second virtual Net Zero Conference – NZ-21!

The event is free of charge to attendees, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors.

Citizens, business leaders, policy makers, elected officials, environmentalists, clean energy providers, nonprofits, and youth and faith community activists from around the region and beyond will meet to explore innovative policies and tools that will accelerate our region’s journey to a clean and equitable energy future.

Agenda Overview

NZ-21 convenes federal, state, regional, and local leaders, businesses, policy makers, scientists, clean energy providers, and advocates to explore how new federal, state, and regional policy and legislation can propel action at the local, grassroots and individual levels. Viewed through the lens of energy equity and environmental justice, NZ-21 is organized around the new law’s four “pillars:”

Pillar I:

End Use Energy

Pillar II:

Energy Efficiency & Flexibility

Pillar III:

Decarbonizing Energy Supply

Pillar IV:

Carbon Sequestration

Conference Theme

We are at a critical intersection in our history where the increasing urgency of the climate crisis has converged with the emergence of exciting new energy policies and programs.

NZ-21 focuses on Massachusetts’ new state climate law — “An Act Creating a Next Generation Roadmap for Massachusetts Climate Policy” — which represents the most significant update to climate policy in the Commonwealth since the landmark Global Warming Solutions Act of 2008.

NZ-21 will engage, educate, empower, and catalyze individuals and organizations to undertake actions to advance the journey to net zero for the Cape & Islands.


Community sponsorship is the primary source of funding for this event and vital to its success. It has enabled event organizers to offer the conference at no cost to participants, thus expanding networking opportunities for all!
