Their Mission Statement

To lead the advancement of sustainability in the urban built environment, and to serve as a model for other cities, through education, advocacy, collaboration and research.

Summary of Impact

THE GREEN CODES TASK FORCEIn July 2008, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn asked Urban Green Council to convene the NYC Green Codes Task Force. They charged us to “undertake a review of current building codes” and “make recommendations on how they could be amended to promote more sustainable practices.” The Task Force produced a fully-formed policy document on February 1, 2010, the result of 18 months of intense analysis and industry collaboration. This has had a major impact, increasing the level of sustainability of buildings in New York and other urban areas. To date, 28 of 111 proposals are in the process (or completed) of NYC legislation. LOCAL LAW 86We have contributed to a number of regulatory changes, including New York City's milestone Local Law 86 mandating LEED standards for city-funded construction projects. This development alone will result in an estimated $12 billion in municipal construction being built to LEED standards by 2017. GREENER, GREATER BUILDINGS PLAN“Greener, Greater Buildings Plan,” is a suite of legislative proposals ratified in December 2009 by the Mayor and City Council Speaker. Our experts contributed technical know-how to drafting the legislation, and promoted broad discussion about the proposed bills and helped property owners and others to understand the impact - both financially and ecologically. GPRO: GREEN PROFESSIONAL BUILDING SKILLS TRAININGIn 2010, we launched our national educational program specifically directed to the people who actually execute green projects: the building trades, contractors, and operators. Customized for each building trade, we offer certification to candidates who pass a trade-specific exam. The specific goal of the curricula is to increase the knowledge of green building methods and the use of sustainable materials and practices in new construction, renovation projects, and building maintenance.
