On April 18th, New York City Council passed the Climate Mobilization Act, an ambitious set of legislation designed to catalyze greenhouse gas emissions reductions throughout the buildings sector. In 2016, buildings accounted for 66% of emissions, therefore, they must be at the front and center of climate policy in order for the City to meet it's 80 x 50 climate reduction goals. This panel seeks to enlighten attendees on the new legislation and NYC's pathway to a low carbon future.
