Mayor Bill de Blasio announced today that the City has made significant progress in greening its own building stock as it works to retrofit all public buildings by 2025 and move toward an 80 percent reduction in all greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 – a key OneNYC target. As the City leads by example in retrofitting its own buildings, it also continues to make it easier for private building owners to do the same, launching a new tool today to track energy and water usage at large buildings.
“BEEx applauds the rapid progress the City has made in realizing the huge energy efficiency potential of its own buildings,” said Richard Yancey, Executive Director of the Building Energy Exchange.
