PlaNYC: Emissions Cutting Programs

Tuesday, May 7, 2013

Join the Emerging Professionals of Urban Green Council at our May Educational Forum to learn about two PlaNYC programs for reducing emissions in NYC: the Mayor's Carbon Challenge and NYC Clean Heat.

The Mayor's Carbon Challenge was launched in 2007, inviting the private sector to match the City's 30x17 goal of reducing municipal greenhouse gas emissions 30% by 2017. The program started with outreach to universities, hospitals and Broadway theaters; the 2011 update expansed the program to commercial tenants and residential buildings.

The 2011 update also included a new rule to phase out the use of #6 and 4 heating oils. The NYC Clean Heat program aims to accelerate this transition to cleaner fuels through technical assistance and improved access to financing and incentives.

Speakers: Jenna Tatum, Coordinator, Mayor's Carbon Challenge & Luke Surowiec, Account Manger, NYC Clean Heat

Date: Tuesday, May 7, 6-8 pm

Location: Empire State Building (Skanska office), 350 Fifth Avenue, 32nd Floor

Continuing Education: GBCI CE Hours Pending, AIA/CES Credits Pending
