Project Summary

Equity and Carbon Database for Multifamily Housing

a year-long effort to increase access to equity-focused data and reduce discrimination as the industry works to decarbonize affordable housing.

Increasingly, building industry stakeholders are looking at a range of indicators – such as performance, carbon emissions, as well as social metrics – to inform decisions ranging from investments to capital planning, to underwriting, to fines and incentives. Currently, the industry lacks reliable social and equality metrics. In collaboration with Equity and Strategy Directors, the project team will engage project partners to create a research framework that incorporates information and perspectives from affordable housing residents and community leaders, especially people of color and low-income communities.

Financing low-carbon housing is always a challenge.
