Webinar: A Practical Revolution: Retrofitting New York's buildings to clean the air and slow the rate of climate change

According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), buildings and buildings construction sectors contribute 36% of global final energy consumption and nearly 40% of total direct and indirect CO2 emissions. Improving building efficiency and creating a sustainable built environment not only reduces CO2 emissions, but also mitigates emissions of short-lived climate pollutants including black carbon, methane, tropospheric ozone and HFCs.

New York City is taking bold action through its OneNYC 2050 Plan to mitigate emissions from its staggering number of nearly 1 million buildings – with a focus on retrofitting existing buildings to make them more energy efficient and powering them with renewable energy.

Join the webinar to hear about action underway from the global to local scale, with insight from the World Green Building Council and Global Alliance for Building and Construction, and an overview from RESET with detailed case studies from enVerid and MMoser that show how New York’s policies to promote green buildings is driving action in the private sector – both from the designer and building occupier perspectives.
