With the Delta variant surging, Denver has issued new public health orders requiring pre-K through 12th-grade students to wear masks at school and requiring city employees and some private-sector workers in high-risk settings to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Buildings and Homes are responsible for 64% of the greenhouse gas emissions in Denver. These places where we live, work, and spend 90% of our time are the key to a sustainable, resilient future for the city. We are working towards making all new and all existing buildings and homes net zero emissions, more sustainable, and more resilient. Net Zero Emissions means highly efficient, all-electric, grid flexible, and powered by 100% renewable electricity. We work with the Denver community to achieve these goals in ways that improve indoor air quality, improve comfort, improve health outcomes, lower energy costs, improve returns for investors, improve equity, and help under-resourced communities thrive.
