Subnational leaders in the United States are implementing infrastructure projects for water, transportation, buildings, and clean energy that measurably and transparently contribute to the goals of greenhouse gas mitigation, climate resilience, and equity for a net-zero future. In this session, the Governor of Indiana, state legislators and executive branch officials, mayors and local government leaders will share actions they are implementing to green their infrastructure.
