The Advisory Board, Working Groups, and the Department of Buildings (DOB) worked together to produce a set of recommendations for the City's consideration to help owners comply with Local Law 97, targeting a 40% reduction in total greenhouse gas emissions from the buildings sector by 2030.

After hundreds of hours of work by the Advisory Board, Working Groups, and city staff members, a report was submitted to the mayor and the speaker of the City Council in December, 2022, that addressed: calculating and reporting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, treatment of different property types, maximizing emissions reductions, assisting owners with compliance, communications and outreach, achieving consistency with LL97 across other regulations, and additional analysis needed to support implementation. Read the report.
