Urban Green has been a driving force behind New York’s green building policy for over a decade.
Our policy work drives green building progress in New York City and State. Bringing together a deep understanding of building energy and carbon performance, our efforts have helped transform NYC’s building policies to be among the most efficient and resilient in the nation.
Our policy recommendations are grounded in data and informed by engagement with a variety of stakeholders, including building owners and operators, designers and engineers, energy management experts, environmental justice leaders, advocacy organizations, elected officials, and administrative agencies.
