Don't miss the panel discussion on "Transforming New York City buildings for a low carbon future" on Day 2 (June 9th) at 5pm CET (11am EDT)! The panelists will discuss the April 2019 climate bill, which aims to cut NYC's carbon emissions by 40% by 2030 by retroffiting old buildings and increasing their energy-efficiency. They will address the question of how do the city authorities plan to achieve this and what are the implications for owners, tenants and the construction industry.
