The NYC Carbon Challenge Handbook for Universities and Hospitals

The NYC Carbon Challenge Handbook for Universities and Hospitals is a reference manual that aggregates the best practices that participants have used to achieve significant GHG reductions in their buildings. The handbook highlights 15 success stories of Challenge participants through case studies and identifies potential pathways to achieve deeper reductions. The handbook caters to universities and hospitals, but it also serves as a tool for any individual who plays a role in elevating conversations and accelerating action on energy efficiency and sustainability within an organization.

The NYC Carbon Challenge Handbook for Co-Ops and Condos

The NYC Carbon Challenge Handbook for Co-Ops and Condos is a tool for co-op and condo residents to learn how to begin reducing their building’s energy use and GHG emissions. The handbook covers the basics of energy efficiency in multifamily residential buildings, the cash incentives and financing available in New York City, and the relevant local laws and regulations aimed at helping the city’s buildings become more efficient.

The New York City Carbon Challenge Progress Report

The New York City Carbon Challenge Progress Report, released in April 2013, details the progress of universities and hospitals in the Carbon Challenge since the program was launched in 2007 and highlights the five participants that met the Challenge goal by 2011. Building on the success of these participants, the report defines opportunities to enhance existing partnerships and expand the Challenge to new sectors as a strategy to increase the efficiency of some of New York City’s largest buildings.
