Benchmarking Compliance Checklist & Guide

New! Updated for reports due May 1, 2014


Urban Green Council has developed a Benchmarking 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 84 and guidance for directing staff or consultants.

Benchmarking is one of the four Greener, Greater Buildings Plan bills that were passed in December 2009.

Please note that this document does not provide detailed compliance instructions; detailed information about Benchmarking compliance and deadlines is available from nyc.gov here. For more information, you may also e-mail the NYC Department of Buildings.
