Audits & Retro-commissioning Compliance Checklist & Guide

Useful Tools to Help with Local Law 87 Compliance


Urban Green Council developed an Audits and Retro-Commissioning Compliance Checklist & User’s Guide, with assistance from the real estate industry and Mayor’s Office, to provide property owners with step-by-step instructions on how to comply with Local Law 87, and guidance on directing staff and consultants through compliance.

Audits and retro-commissioning is one of four Greener, Greater Buildings Plan bills that were passed in December 2009.  Learn how Urban Green Council can bring a LL87 presentation to your organization or staff at your convenience, and at no charge.  View the presentation here.

Please note that this document does not provide detailed compliance instructions; detailed instructions are available here, as are a list of benchmarking resources. For more information, you may also contact the NYC Department of Buildings.
