Join BE-Ex for this year’s Climate Week NYC, a week-long showcase from September 20th to 26th dedicated to inspiring global climate action. Hosted by international non-profit the Climate Group, and in partnership with the United Nations, COP26, and the City of New York, Climate Week NYC’s programming covers hundreds of events around a variety of themes— from the built environment, environmental justice, and energy, to food, transport, and finance.
Building Energy Exchange is thrilled to support this year’s Climate Week by contributing to the rich selection of programming.
On September 22nd, join Building Energy Exchange, the NYC Accelerator, and the Natural Resources Defense Council for a panel on New York City’s environmental justice (EJ) laws— Local Laws 60 and 64— and their impact on building decarbonization efforts. Hear from a panel of experts from the NYC Mayor’s Office of Climate Policy, WE ACT for Environmental Justice, Green & Healthy Homes Initiative, and the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, on the City’s EJ initiatives, including the data-driven Environmental Justice for All Report, and their impacts on citywide decision-making and planning. Rory Christian, Commissioner for the New York State Public Service Commission, will moderate the discussion. Tune in online or join us in person at the Exchange in downtown Manhattan.
