About the event

The Carbon Leadership Forum issued the Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) Challenge in the fall of 2021. A group of leaders from MEP firms responded to the Challenge and collectively established a Commitment for you to join. Moving forward, this group of leaders will be responsible for convening signatories around a common goal. 

The MEP 2040 Challenge: “All systems engineers shall advocate for and achieve net zero carbon in their projects: operational carbon by 2030 and embodied carbon by 2040.”

Many MEP design firms and manufacturers are already responding to this Challenge. This session will feature founding members of the MEP 2040 Challenge, as well as local MEP firms rising to the challenge to speak about their commitments.
