"We have to move in the direction of a carbon metric for building performance, and we need to be thinking about both operational and embodied carbon. We have a long way to get there, but we'll work our way through it." -Gina Bocra
Listen to our second episode of Urban Green Live, hosted by Urban Green Council CEO John Mandyck. This livestreamed interview series features industry experts from NYC and around the globe to talk about solutions for a zero-carbon future.
On May 12, we were delighted to welcome Gina Bocra to the program—she’s the first-ever Chief Sustainability Officer at NYC’s Department of Buildings. Bocra and Mandyck discussed New York City’s plan to cut carbon in buildings and the new Energy Conservation Code on the same day it went into effect. They also discussed next steps in the implementation of LL97, the city’s climate emissions reduction law for buildings.
