New Green Building Plan for New York City introduced

New York City is set to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent over 2005 levels by 2050 thanks to a green initiative lead by the city’s mayor, Bill de Blasio. The initiative, One City, Built to Last: Transforming New York City’s Buildings for a Low-Carbon Future, aims to retrofit public and private buildings to dramatically reduce the city’s contributions to climate change making New York  it the largest city to commit to a reduction.

It’s estimated that around three quarters of the city’s greenhouse gas emissions come from energy used to heat, cool, and power buildings, making building retrofits a central component of any plan to dramatically reduce emissions.  It is expected that around 3,000 city-owned buildings with significant energy use will be retrofitted over the next 10 years.
