Global Lessons In Green Building

Monday, Sep 19, 2011

From policy mandates and financial incentives to implementation challenges, how do the progressive practices and policies of New York City compare to those of other major cities? What can NYC learn and do better?

Held at the start of Climate Week NYC, the conference will discuss how measures like New York City’s Greener, Greater Buildings Plan stack up against similar efforts in other major global cities, as well as help answer: How progressive standards, incentives, and public programs work best together to drive property owners to invest in energy efficiency? and What really drives innovation—is it more than just higher energy costs? We’ll take a look via two panels: "The Role of Policy and Codes" and "Market Forces and Finance".
