Support Us


Urban Green Council’s mission is to transform buildings for a sustainable future in New York City and around the world. We help New York City and State develop cutting-edge policy, we educate a broad range of professionals, and we research solutions that are amplified through coverage in major publications like The New York Times. By working with both government and industry, we leverage our effectiveness. Urban Green pursues activities that have scalable impact: We focus exclusively on buildings, which account for 66 percent of New York City’s carbon emissions.

We target influential professionals—real estate owners, property managers, builders, engineers, architects and government officials, to name a few—rather than the general public. “Influencing the influencers” allows us to move the needle on sustainability through a very small portion of New York State’s 20 million residents.

Founded in 2002, Urban Green is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit. We look to individuals, organizations, foundations and government to support our critical work. For more information, please contact or 212.514.9385 x 138.
