New York City recently enacted one of the most revolutionary initiatives in its history, aimed at reducing the city’s greenhouse gas emissions. The Climate Mobilization Act (nicknamed by some as “a Green New Deal for New York City”) significantly limits carbon emissions for most buildings larger than 25,000 square feet. The centerpiece, known as Local Law 97, compels medium-to-large building owners to reduce emissions by, typically, around 40% by 2030. With nearly 60% of these buildings being residential, many of our homes are about to undergo significant transformation.
This month’s Forum will focus on LL97 and its impact on NYC’s residential buildings. How will it affect where YOU live?
* How will management comply with LL97 in your building?
* How will it affect your wallet, your building’s amenities and your quality of life at home?
* How will it affect affordable and rent-regulated buildings?

Opportunities for organizations to improve their environmental and competitive advantage by reducing their climate
impact are prevalent, yet not always apparent. The GreenHomeNYC July Forum on Government and Corporate Commitments drew a diverse crowd of industry professionals, students, teachers, job seekers, city officials and the public to discuss the multitude of challenges and growing successes in corporate and governmental sustainability. From methods of integrating alternative fuels in emergency response vehicles, to rethinking and automating our transportation system, to using sustainable economic methods to rethink the way we plan for company growth, the Forum offered a front row seat for the systemic changes remapping industry and our world.
