UN HQ: THE CARBON CASE FOR RETROFITS


In 2007, the United Nations determined that it would be more sustainable to retrofit their New York City headquarters than to rebuild. This decision led to significant carbon savings, and demonstrates the value and urgency of building reuse and renovation in reducing global greenhouse gas emissions.

Learn more about this project and the importance of embodied carbon in our new online course UN HQ: The Carbon Case for Retrofits, featuring Michael Adlerstein, the Assistant Secretary-General and Executive Director for the UN Capital Master Plan.
