Additional partners for this summit include US EPA, NIEHS, Duke, NC State, UNC-Chapel Hill, NC DEQ, NC Commerce, and RTI International. Attendees will include stakeholders, thought leaders, and experts representing state/federal/local governments, academia/research, community groups, and businesses across North Carolina.

Goals of the Summit include understanding the opportunities and challenges in NC from a transition to a net-zero CO2 future, developing a framework for characterizing the full positive and negative consequences (with an emphasis on impacts on rural and urban underserved communities), identifying the “low hanging fruit” net zero investments, and helping identify gaps in data and scientific understanding.
