SHARING GLOBAL SOLUTIONS

Last week, at the request of the U.S. Department of State, Urban Green hosted a delegation of building professionals and development officials from Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Kuwait and Sudan.

"International delegations are looking to learn from our work in NYC because it has global relevance,” said John Mandyck, CEO of Urban Green. “Not only is our work needed to achieve NYC's climate goals, it can influence how the world advances more sustainably."

The representatives were visiting to research strategies for resiliency and sustainable buildings; they were particularly interested in adapting Urban Green’s Building Resiliency Task Force and Blueprint for Efficiency.
