Annual reports

We’re incredibly proud of our impact in realizing cleaner, healthier, low-carbon buildings for all New Yorkers.

2022 was our 20th anniversary here at Urban Green, bringing with it new challenges, opportunities and accomplishments. We’ve come a long way from our beginnings as an entirely volunteer-run organization in 2002, but we have so much work to do to realize a carbon-free future for New York.

In 2022, we explored equitable electrification and expanded our Grid Ready analysis to NYC’s Environmental Justice Areas. We published industry-leading analysis of the latest NYC benchmarking data, showing how the COVID-19 pandemic dramatically altered energy and water use. We trained over 3,000 students through our Energy Code and GPRO courses. And in November, we hosted a record-breaking webinar with the Department of Buildings to unpack the proposed rules for Local Law 97.

Thank you for your continued support—it’s what makes our work possible. Let’s continue to build solutions for climate change.
