WHAT COULD CARBON TRADING MEAN FOR NYC?

On Monday, NYU released the highly anticipated carbon trading study required by New York City’s Local Law 97. The study is the first comprehensive modeling assessment of the law's costs and benefits and the feasibility of a potential carbon trading program for buildings. Urban Green managed a stakeholder group that provided input throughout the study based on our earlier convenings on the topic.

On December 14, join Urban Green and the NYU study team for a deep dive on the report's findings, including how, with the right design, a carbon trading program can deliver deeper GHG and air pollution savings and spur greater investment in NYC buildings citywide and in environmental justice communities.

For more information on this report and what carbon trading could mean for NYC, read the NYU report and join us on December 14.
