Climate Week NYC Bright ‘n Green Systems Tour Sept. 30th 201330 Sep 2013, Posted by Blog, Events in
At “Bright ‘n Green,” our aptly named net zero energy building visitors are invited to learn first hand about the systems in place. In its preliminary stage, the project earned EPA and OER certifications and received a Green Site Award from the Mayor’s Office of Environmental Remediation. When completed, Bright ‘n Green will additionally qualify for an Energy Star rating, meet LEED Platinum standards and meet the standards of the Living Building Challenge.
Celebrating design that creates transformative change and carrying forth programs for educating the public about the environmental qualities of the Bright ‘n Green Living Building project is an important aspect of the challenge.
Bright ‘n Green hosted its first public tour in conjunction with Climate Week NYC – the global summit created by The Climate Group which marked its 5th anniversary this year.
CWNYC has become a key event on the international climate change calendar and a hub for over 50 high-profile meetings, events and activities organized in and around New York City by a diverse group of business, government, arts and civil society players. Learn more at ClimateWeekNYC.org as well as on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and #CWNYC and if you made it out for the tour, thank you for joining us! If you didn’t make it, on September 30th we opened to the public for a guided tour allowing visitors to see behind the walls and beneath the floors of this truly revolutionary project in urban living.
