Event Recap: BERDO 2.0 Regulations and Next Steps

On Monday, February 5th A Better City hosted a meeting with the City of Boston’s BERDO 2.0 team to hear about the newly finalized BERDO 2.0 regulations and polices, and the next steps for implementation. During the course of the 90 minute event, the following slides were presented by the BERDO team of Hannah Payne, Director of Carbon Neutrality, Dima Moujahed, Carbon Neutrality Project Manager, and Diana Vasquez, BERDO Review Board Manager. These covered a general BERDO overview including the emissions standard and compliance dates, followed by details on the calculation of emissions, options for reducing emissions, flexibility measures (including Blended Emissions, Building Portfolios, Individual Compliance Schedules and Hardship Compliance Plans), fines and enforcement, flexibility measure application forms and deadlines, and resources being offered by the City of Boston. Member’s questions were answered throughout the presentation and can be heard on the recording. For any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to ytorrie@abettercity.org.
