MAYOR'S OFFICE APPOINTS URBAN GREEN TO CONVENE STAKEHOLDERS FOR TRADING STUDY


The NYC Mayor's Office of Sustainability has tapped Urban Green to convene a group of stakeholders to support the carbon trading study required by Local Law 97. The study, led by NYU and due early next year, will assess the feasibility and implementation of carbon trading as a compliance path for the law’s building emissions limits.

Urban Green’s role builds on our work over the past year to jumpstart policy thinking with an advisory group in our Global Climate Efficiency Trading Initiative. We’ll release a report this spring framing key questions and potential policy approaches. And we look forward to this next phase, supporting the city’s detailed study with stakeholder recommendations to help develop a trading program that works for NYC.

GRID-FRIENDLY BUILDINGS

Join Urban Green on February 27 for our latest Greening the Grid event. Expert panelists will discuss how buildings can adapt to a changing grid, and the limits of existing strategies.
