Join GreenHomeNYC at this month’s Forum for in-person presentations with Q&A.
The mayor has proposed a string of permitting and zoning related changes through his “City of Yes” initiative to modernize the city’s zoning regulations in order to support its climate goals. This presentation will provide a preview of the changes proposed in the City of Yes for Carbon Neutrality and the social, economic and environmental benefits it aims to create.
We will also hear from a fire safety expert to take a deep dive into one of the components of COY to address these common questions – is energy storage safe to install and should it be included in COY?
Join us at this forum to learn how New York City is jump-starting its response to climate change and how you can help.
Doors open at 6:15. Light refreshments will be served. Stick around for networking afterwards!

Waste generation, disposal and recycling play an important role in shaping sustainable living. New York city generates about 14 million tons of trash a year. So, what happens to all this trash? Waste, after collection, and depending on its kind, is composted or transported to recycling facilities, waste-to-energy facilities, or landfills.
