A LOOK BACK AT 2018


Last year was a momentous year for Urban Green. We laid the foundation for groundbreaking policy with the release of the Blueprint for Efficiency, we launched a new initiative to advance electrification in New York, we trained over 3,100 building professionals in 57 cities, and we welcomed our first-ever CEO John Mandyck. We continued to advance building sutainabilty in New York City while adding an international focus to our work.

Take a look at key highlights from last year by downloading our 2018 Annual Report.

And thank you to the committees, volunteers and supporters who helped us advance our mission.
