Climate Resilience & Innovation Initiative
Sacramento ULI’s newest initiative responds to the impact of climate change on land use development. CR&I provides valuable information to ULI Sacramento members on the responses of local real estate projects to climate change policies and market trends related to sustainability. This initiative seeks to highlight projects that provide insights on innovative design, financing, and planning strategies aimed at achieving greenhouse gas reductions in new and existing buildings and transportation projects. Additionally, CR&I will bring forth information on adopted or proposed climate policies at the federal, state, regional level with a focus on the implications of these decisions for residential and non-residential real estate in the region.
