Addressing climate change means addressing the energy used in buildings. Two-thirds of New York City’s greenhouse gas emissions come from this sector, and the city needed reliable data to create effective policy to reduce emissions and track progress. Enter benchmarking.
Large and midsize buildings are responsible for over half of NYC’s building emissions, or 34 percent of the citywide total. Urban Green’s latest research, New York City’s 2020 Energy and Water Use Report, evaluates the energy used by NYC’s large buildings and whether they’re on track to meet the city’s climate goals.
