Climate Mobilization Act Trainings

Get informed on New York City climate legislation and its impact on buildings. Schedule a free presentation on the Climate Mobilization Act – the ambitious, first-of-its-kind legislation placing a limit on emissions from New York City buildings­ – and its impact on market rate buildings and the affordable housing sector.

BE-Ex is offering two one-hour seminars on the Climate Mobilization Act: a basic primer on the CMA and a primer specific for affordable housing. These trainings examine the basic principles of the CMA and provide actionable guidance for property owners, managers, developers, and other key building decision makers of either market rate or affordable housing buildings.

Get in touch below to schedule a presentation of either primer at your office, or visit the events calendar to view upcoming sessions at BE-Ex.

These programs are available for 1 AIA CEU each.


Can’t find time for a live session? Take either primer on demand at BE-Ex Ed, an online learning platform for Building Energy Exchange. 

These 30-minute, AIA-accredited courses cover basic details of NYC Local Laws ­(LLs) ­– including LLs 92 & 94 (Green Roofs) and LL 97 (Emissions Limits) – and outline pathways for compliance for market rate and affordable housing buildings.

These programs are available for 0.5 AIA CEU each.
