Description

ABOUT THE COALITION

The Building Decarbonization Coalition (BDC) aligns critical stakeholders on a path to transform the nation’s buildings through clean energy, using policy, research, market development, and public engagement. The BDC and its members are charting the course to eliminate fossil fuels in buildings to improve people’s health, cut climate and air pollution, prioritize high-road jobs, and ensure that our communities are more resilient to the impacts of climate change.

The need to electrify the United States (U.S.) building stock and phase out fossil fuels has gone from a niche technical concern to the most debated climate issue in the U.S. The BDC is proud to have been a leader in this conversation by organizing, speaking for, and empowering a broad group of stakeholders who are united behind the common goal of eliminating fossil fuels from buildings.

We work to educate and inspire the people who live in buildings. We do this with our Switch Is On brand, which also provides tools to make switching to an all-electric lifestyle a bit more streamlined. BDC’s “Switch is On” campaign promotes all-electric lifestyles and helps educate and inspire consumers to switch out their gas appliances for efficient, electric alternatives. The campaign uses a variety of marketing approaches to reach consumers, including but not limited to paid media, earned media, grassroots/community marketing, social media, and translated marketing and educational materials.
