With Robert D. LiMandri, Commissioner of the NYC Department of Buildings

**PLEASE NOTE THE NEW LOCATION: Rosenthal Pavilion, NYU Kimmel Center, 60 Washington Square South, 10th Floor

Join us for a lecture and lively discussion on greening New York City.  Commissioner LiMandri will speak about City initiatives and why buildings need to be a major focus within New York City’s efforts to "go green."  As New York City's buildings are responsible for approximately 80% of the City's carbon emissions, energy efficiency in buildings is key to moving the City forward.   LiMandri will also discuss what other municipalities around the world are doing in regards to energy-efficient buildings and explore ways to move a green agenda forward amidst competing interests.  

The Commissioner will take questions after his lecture and a light reception will follow.
