Cambridge Rotary partners with Biodiversity for a Livable Climate and the City of Cambridge for Tree Planting in Danehy Park






The International Panel on Climate Change urges all countries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) by 45% by 2030 to keep the earth warming less than 1.5 degrees C. 

Buildings cause 25% of GHG emissions. Businesses and residents overlook the obvious solution of weatherizing their house - insulation, better windows and doors. New England Energy Efficiency Co, a Mass Save contractor, will conduct the energy audit and make a donation to ROTARY!!!


Email Susan Butler sbutler@tufts.edu or contact nvclimatec@gmail.com to schedule your audit.

Provide your name - INDICATE ROTARY after your last name, email cell phone and home address and your average electric bill. Eastern MA residents only.
