In this special New York Climate Week episode, the ESG Insider podcast explores how the built environment is responsible for nearly 40% of all global carbon dioxide emissions, and what it will take to decarbonize this vast sector.
“We understand that this is costly,” says John Mandyck, CEO of the Urban Green Council, which advocated for Local Law 97. “But we’re doing this for a reason. We’re doing it to protect our city from the impacts of climate change.”
The Real Deal caught up with Urban Green CEO John Mandyck to discuss New York’s milestone climate policy, climate tech’s potential to create healthier and more equitable neighborhoods and Urban Green’s vision for a market to trade carbon credits.
