Mayor Wu's administration is committed to a Green New Deal for Boston, by reducing planet-warming pollution while creating economic opportunities for everyone, especially those from environmental justice communities who often suffer the worst impacts of climate change. In October 2021, the City passed the Building Emissions Reduction and Disclosure Ordinance (BERDO 2.0), which sets carbon targets for medium- and large-sized buildings across Boston to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 for Boston’s largest source of emissions. BERDO applies to nearly 6,000 buildings in Boston and requires buildings greater than 20,000 square feet or 15 units to report their annual energy usage to the City and to meet declining emissions standards. The City makes the resulting metrics on energy and greenhouse emissions publicly available.
