For the first time in history, more than half of the world's people reside in metropolitan areas.
In the United States, movement towards urban sustainability has taken the form of municipal initiatives. Early-adopter cities recognize that sustainability programs have many benefits in promoting environmental, economic, and social well-being.

The scope and organization of many of these efforts have been examined by Kent Portney, professor of political science at Tufts University, in his book, "Taking Sustainable Cities Seriously: A Comparative Analysis of Twenty-Three U.S. Cities". Professor Portney's presentation will be followed by remarks by Marla Simpson from New York City's own sustainability program.

While anecdotal data gathered during the COVID-19 pandemic suggests that the near complete absence of occupants has had a surprisingly small impact on total building energy use, still, there are myriad ways in which tenants can dramatically lower consumption. Learn how to get ahead of the energy demand curve now!
