Our Advocacy Fund supports important initiatives like the Green Codes Task Force, and enables Urban Green Council to work with government and private stakeholders to advance sustainable building efforts throughout New York City. By focusing on legislative action, Urban Green Council helps ensure meaningful change that makes an impact for generations to come.

Urban Green Council’s Education Fund supports our ambitious and varied educational events, which help keep New York area professionals up to date on the latest trends in urban sustainability. Our modest education fees only cover a small percentage of our education costs in order to foster broad participation; your support helps ensure that our robust educational offerings meet the needs of over 4,000 New Yorkers each year.

Our Research Fund supports projects of special interest to the New York building community. Our most recent study, There are Holes in our Walls, found that the average room air conditioner leaks as much air as a six-square-inch hole—and increases total annual heating costs by $130-$180 million in New York City alone.
