Last year, Urban Green Council brought together more than 40 leading building and energy stakeholders under the 80×50 Buildings Partnership, recognizing the need for extensive dialogue to develop impactful and thoughtful policy. In August 2018, after 8 months of collaboration, we released our 21-point Blueprint for Efficiency, a groundbreaking framework to cut carbon in New York City’s large buildings.

Fifty thousand buildings would be impacted by the proposed policy, which would deliver 20 percent energy reduction in large buildings. Getting there will necessitate changes in design, construction, operation, and tenant behavior. The Blueprint for Efficiency tackles the complexity of this goal, considering metrics, technological feasibility, affordable housing, assistance for building owners, state policy and more.

This program will include a brief overview of the report and discuss some of the key challenges of transforming the Blueprint into law—and then implementing it on the ground.
