ALL have stepped up to sponsor the
Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative's
NET ZERO 2021 virtual conference!
...and you can too!

Dear Business/Nonprofit/Institutional Leader,

After a year of challenge, change and COVID, we on the Cape and Islands are also fighting the impacts of the climate crisis at unprecedented levels.

That's why Cape Light Compact, Cape Cod 5, Cape Air, Cape Cod Community College and the Cape Cod Commission have all stepped up to sponsor Net Zero 2021 (NZ-21). Read on to learn why you should join them in sponsoring this popular regional event!

Net Zero Conference
The Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative's signature program — the Net Zero Cape & Islands Conference — annually convenes federal, state, regional and local leaders in climate crisis work to enhance collaboration, share best practices, develop specific action plans, profile success stories, and advance clean energy throughout the region.

Being held virtually on Friday, October 31, 2021, Net Zero 2021: Powering Change at the Grassroots Level | Our Roadmap to a Clean Energy Future will host presentations and panel discussion by federal, state, regional and local leaders including:
  • U.S. Senator Ed Markey, D-Massachusetts
  • Katie Theoharides, Secretary of Massachusetts' Executive Office of Energy and the Environment
  • Cape & Islands Elected Officials
  • Maggie Downey, Administrator, Cape Light Compact
  • Kristy Senatori, Executive Director, Cape Cod Commission
  • Representatives of Regional Grassroots Climate & Environmental Organizations
  • ... and more!

Why Sponsor?
Last year’s virtual conference drew more than 650 participants from across the region and around the country, with our sponsors receiving nearly 75,000 impressions for their organizations' goods and services. We anticipate this year’s conference to be bigger, better and even more well attended.

Sponsorship of NZ-21 enhances opportunities to showcase your business or organization as an environmentally conscious advocate, market your products and services to an engaged audience, and help drive work to keep the Cape & Islands region safe, sustainable and secure.

Through the generosity of local and regional businesses, institutions and nonprofits, the Climate Collaborative has been able to offer this invaluable community event at no charge to participants thus expanding our network of educated, informed and activated climate stakeholders throughout the region and beyond.

Too, as a NZ-21 sponsor, you will join and connect with leading businesses, nonprofits and institutions from across the region and the Commonwealth in supporting this event and the ongoing work of the Climate Collaborative.

Opportunity knocks
We would like to offer your organization the opportunity to Sponsor NZ-21 and to showcase your organization's products, services and brand before a highly engaged and activated audience. Through sponsorship, your organization will be recognized as a driver of the change needed to keep the Cape and Islands a thriving and sustainable region.

Benefits & More
Check out our Sponsorship Levels and Benefits on the Sponsor NZ-21 page and please consider sponsoring NZ-21 as generously as possible. Sponsorships are available on a limited basis and the deadline for commitment is September 20, 2021.
