Sustainable Buildings: Design and Construction in the 21st Century
Buildings dominate New York City's carbon footprint. The course focuses on Greener Greater Building Plan (PlaNYC) and Zone Green as tools of climate change mitigation and the energy and water efficiency improvements crucial to environmental sustainability. With approximately 75 percent of New York City's carbon emissions coming from energy used in buildings, and projections that buildings will make up 85 percent of all real estate in 2030, NYC is positioned to be the leader in one the most comprehensive efforts to develop best practices in green construction and retrofitting. Please note: On May 1, 2012 the New York City Council adopted the Zone Green Text Amendment. The zoning text changes are now in effect.
