The Climate Mobilization Act: What Landlords and Tenants Need to Know

Networking and Panel Discussion

Co-hosted by

Earlier this year, the New York City Council passed the Climate Mobilization Act - a series of bills designed to dramatically reduce the carbon footprint of buildings across New York City. The Act requires buildings above 25,000 square feet to meet strict greenhouse gas emissions limits starting in 2024. Our panel of experts will discuss the impact of this law on NYC landlords and tenants.
