Building Decarbonization Breakfast

Join Building Energy Exchange and New York League of Conservation Voters for a presentation on the fundamentals of building decarbonization in New York—the climate context, policy landscape, and pathways to a carbon-free built environment.

Improving the energy and carbon performance of buildings has become a main pillar of New York’s climate action plan, with buildings accounting for nearly 70% of all emissions citywide, and 40% statewide. A rapidly expanding set of legislations now chart the path to building decarbonization by 2050, while addressing the critical need for healthful, comfortable, and affordable housing for all New Yorkers. Tasked with implementing these ambitious climate objectives, the building industry now must rapidly adapt to reduce their climate impact and comply with legislation.

Emerging professionals in sustainability and energy, real estate, design, government, and more, get primed on the what, why, and how of building decarbonization and network with your peers over breakfast at the Exchange in downtown Manhattan.
