Webinar: A Practical Revolution: Retrofitting New York's buildings to clean the air and slow the rate of climate change (recording)


New York City is taking bold action through its OneNYC 2050 Plan to mitigate emissions from its staggering number of nearly 1 million buildings – with a focus on retrofitting existing buildings to make them more energy efficient and powering them with renewable energy.

To celebrate World Environment Day on 5 June 2019, UN Environment, Climate and Clean Air Coalition and World Green Building Council hosted this one hour webinar that provides a global and local view on the policy context for green building retrofits from the World Green Building Council and Global Alliance for Building and Construction; further background on the health and climate benefits from RESET; and two case studies from New York City - one from the perspective of the designer (enVerid) and one from the perspective of the building occupier (MMoser).
