Presentation slides



The City is considering changes that would require large buildings to lower their emissions over time. Join staff from the Community Development Department and several City Councilors for a webinar to learn about proposed changes to the Building Energy Use Disclosure Ordinance (BEUDO). 

If you can't attend virtually, we will stream the webinar on the second floor of 344 Broadway. There are a limited number of seats available.

Draft Amendments


In Cambridge, more than 80% of greenhouse gas emissions come from buildings. Since 2014, the Building Energy Use Disclosure Ordinance (BEUDO) has required buildings over a certain size to report energy use to the City. (50+ units for residential, and 25,000+ square feet for commercial.) Proposed amendments would require these buildings to reduce greenhouse gas emissions over time. 

For more information, please visit cambridgema.gov/BEUDO.
