Host: JB&B


The CTBUH New York "Future Leaders" Committee presents a panel discussion on how New York City's 80x50 plan will revolutionize the way we design and operate buildings to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

In 2007, New York City committed to a goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 30 percent by 2030. Over the past 10 years, progress on this goal has exceeded expectations and the City is currently on target for a 40 percent reduction by 2030 (40x30). Recognizing that climate change is an existential threat to the city, in 2014 the Mayor’s Office committed to the recommendations of the Paris Agreement, for a reduction in greenhouse gases of 80 percent by 2050 (80x50).

The interim milestone of 40x30 can be achieved through clearly defined steps like changing fuel sources and upgrading energy-consuming equipment. However, moving forward to 80x50 will require more in-depth measures affecting all sectors, including Energy, Transportation and Waste.
Join us for an for an informative presentation to learn more about how NYC will achieve its 80x50 goals.
