Landmark legislation to reduce carbon emissions from buildings was enacted in New York City earlier this year. The Climate Mobilization Act includes a number of laws that will be implemented by the Department of Buildings. The centerpiece of these is Local Law 97, which places a GHG limit on the emissions of existing buildings that are greater than 25,000 Square Feet. This law is unprecedented and the opportunity to work on its implementation is exciting. NYC Department of Buildings has posted seven open positions (PDF with full descriptions attached below) that will support this work and are looking for enthusiastic, talented, and creative candidates to fill these roles.
