The Building Energy Exchange wishes to express our unequivocal support for racial justice and those protesting racism and systemic violence against Black people and other communities of color. As an environmental organization we recognize that racial justice and climate justice are inextricably linked. We remain committed to the advancement of buildings that enable a healthful, sustainable and equitable future for every person in every community, especially for those who have been denied these benefits the longest.
Black lives matter and we stand alongside those demanding action. We recognize the need for systemic change in our society and across our field. It is our imperative and responsibility to foster a more inclusive and supportive community through our organization, our public programs, and other offerings.
