Panel Event: "The Green New Deal" - Sept. 18

On Sept. 18th, the architecture and interior design firms Spacesmith and Davis Brody Bond will co-host a presentation and discussion on New York City’s Local Law 97, with guest speaker John Mandyck, CEO of Urban Green Council. Similar to “The Green New Deal,” which aims to dramatically reduce carbon emissions over the next 30 years, this ambitious law creates carbon emissions limits for most buildings over 25,000 square feet. At the panel event, titled: The Green New Deal – What Building Owners and Developers Need to Know, attendees will gain a better understanding of how Local Law 97 will affect them and what steps they can take to make their buildings more environmentally friendly.

"As New York City searches for ways to combat climate change, real estate owners and developers need to know about this new building emissions law and what it means to them,” said Roger Marquis, business development director at Spacesmith. “During this presentation, we will discuss Local Law 97 in detail and review the impending deadlines.”

Urban Green Council is a New York City-based, non-profit organization dedicated to transforming buildings for a sustainable future. It plays a major role in creating new legislation focused on improving the energy efficiency of buildings through research and education.
