Mayor Bill de Blasio, by announcing his policy to reduce city-wide carbon emissions in One City: Built to Last, has set the course for effective climate change mitigation and resilient adaptation. Passive House is the one building standard that reliably and affordably delivers deep cuts in energy use proportionate to our climate challenge, while providing increased comfort, indoor health and climate resilience.
Join leading local and global Passive House practitioners for a one day event that will demonstrate how Passive House retrofits and new construction will help achieve New York City’s carbon reduction goals. An expo will showcase over 30 leading high-performance product and service providers.
Urban Green's Director of Policy, Laurie Kerr, will participate in the closing session, "Policy, Passive House and a Resilient New York Future", for a lively discussion on the role Passive House can and should play in meeting Mayor de Blasio's 80% by 2050 carbon reduction goals.
