Get informed on New York City climate legislation and its impact on buildings. Register now for the Climate Mobilization Act Primer, a one-hour seminar examining the basic principles of the Climate Mobilization Act and offering actionable guidance for building decision makers.
The Climate Mobilization Act, passed in April of 2019, is an ambitious legislative package placing emissions limits on New York City’s large commercial and residential buildings. In addition to these emissions limits, codified in Local Law 97 of 2019, the legislation includes green roof and solar PV mandates (Local Laws 92 & 94), building energy performance grades (Local Law 95), and the establishment of clean energy financing tools (Local Law 96).
The Climate Mobilization Act Primer is designed for property owners, managers, developers, and other key stakeholders interested in gaining a foundational understanding of the Climate Mobilization Act and for those seeking direction as they navigate these new regulations.
