Climate Ready Buildings Training

The Climate Ready Buildings Training is designed to educate affordable housing project teams – including building owners, architects, and contractors – on how to design and construct high-performance buildings that are resilient against the increasing pressures of climate change and align with NY’s climate goals.


Climate Ready Buildings Training is offered in both live in-person and on-demand formats. Visit our event calendar to register for an in-person session, or visit BE-Ex Ed, an e-learning platform from Building Energy Exchange, for an on-demand delivery.
