NYC GREEN SCHOOLS

In 2007, the New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) and Department of Education (DOE) requested that MOEC review the New York City Green Schools Rating System (GSRS) to determine whether it would be acceptable as an alternative to LEED® for New Construction version 2.2, one of  the LEED® rating systems allowed by the Rules in effect at the time. In accordance with the law’s provisions and based on an independent third party analysis, the Director of the Mayor’s Office of Environmental Coordination elected to use the NYC GSRS as an alternative to LEED® for New Construction version 2.2, finding it to be no less stringent than this LEED® system.
