Reducing Emissions from the Buildings Sector

October 15, 2020
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Zoom

New York’s nation-leading Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) will require significant changes to our biggest sectors. As the Climate Action Council considers strategies and solutions for achieving these ambitious mandates, NYLCVEF in partnership with Columbia University’s Sabin Center for Climate Change Law is convening a series of virtual forums on each sector to unpack some of our biggest challenges. We held the first forum in this series in August, focused on offshore wind transmission. Check out the video here


This second forum in the series will focus on buildings, which comprise 30% of our statewide greenhouse house gas emissions and make up a staggering 70% of New York City’s emissions. You’ll hear experts in the buildings sector discuss policy solutions, challenges, and opportunities at both the city and statewide levels.


Panelists (list in formation):


Sarah Burger, PUSH Buffalo

Sophie Cardona, NYSERDA

Marvin Church, Comrie Enterprises

John Ciovacco, President of Aztech Geothermal

Dan Egan, Vornado

Stephanie Margolis, NYC Climate Action Alliance

Bill Nowak, NY-GEO

Amy Turner, Sabin Center

Jason Vollen, AECOM


Join our virtual forum on reducing emissions from buildings, in New York City and beyond.
