GreenHomeNYCPatty Noonan Memorial Forum on Policy – Taking on the OneNYC
Challenge <http://greenhomenyc.org/forum/13116/>May 11, 2016

Upcoming Event!

With Earth Day still fresh on everyone’s minds and the beginning of Summer
around the corner, there is the inevitability that soon the energy use in
NYC buildings will be going up. But wait- isn’t the city encouraging
a decrease our carbon output? And aren’t buildings a top producer of
carbon? Yes and Yes! That is why this May at GreenHomeNYC’s forum, we’ll be
addressing just that!

At our annual Patty Noonan Memorial Forum on Policy, we will pick up where
we left off last year in regards to the OneNYC Policy goals and the
progress made thus far.  Although the OneNYC Plan focuses on many different
aspects of a stronger city, we will hear from guest speakers whose work
correlates to the city’s goal of 80% reduction in greenhouse gasses by
2050, as well as hear analysis on the targets set before us.
Join us for an evening of insight and discussion from experienced
professionals in the programs that are helping to achieve these important
