GLOBAL EXCHANGES: NEW WEBINAR SERIES WITH UKGBC


We’re excited to announce an international webinar series in partnership with the United Kingdom Green Building Council (UKGBC), part of our new Global Exchanges initiative.

During the webinars, experts will focus on green building policy from the New York City and UK perspectives. We’ll compare approaches to improving building performance and learn what has been most effective in both regions.

The series will kick off on May 23 with Comparing Codes: Regulating Efficiency, a comparison of each side's energy codes and new building regulations, along with discussion on the UK’s plan for a net zero energy approach.

On May 30, the series continues with Retrofit Requirements, where NYC and UK experts will share their experiences on opportunities, challenges and performance requirements for existing buildings.

Stay tuned for additional Global Exchanges in the coming months.
