*Monthly Forum: The Heart of the NYC Green New Deal - LL97*

[image: image.png]

New York City recently enacted one of the most revolutionary initiatives in
its history, aimed at reducing the city's greenhouse gas emissions. The
Climate Mobilization Act (nicknamed by some as "a Green New Deal for New
York City") significantly limits carbon emissions for most buildings larger
than 25,000 square feet. The centerpiece, known as Local Law 97, compels
medium-to-large building owners to reduce emissions by, typically, around
40% by 2030. With nearly 60% of these buildings being residential, many of
our homes are about to undergo significant transformation.

This month's Forum will focus on LL97 and its impact on NYC's residential
buildings. How will it affect where YOU live?

* How will management comply with LL97 in your building?
* How will it affect your wallet, your building's amenities and your
quality of life at home?
* How will it affect affordable and rent-regulated buildings?

*Date*: Wednesday, October 16, 2019
*Time*: 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
*Place*: Knoll Showroom, 1330 Ave of the Americas, 2nd floor, New York, NY,
