The impact of climate change has taken center stage in real estate and the built environment. Over two-thirds of commercial real estate professionals consider reducing greenhouse gas emissions as a top organizational goal.  Particularly in New York, the real estate industry will play a critical role in the state’s ability to achieve its emissions reduction targets.

With leadership from the WCA, Westchester is poised to take a leading role.  Join us to hear expert speakers discuss the most critical climate change issues impacting our region’s real estate industry:

  • New Climate Land Use Guidance
  • Sustainable Building Strategies
  • Major New Clean Energy Infrastructure Investment
