NYC Local Law 97 of 2019 (Bill 1253)
Carbon Reduction for New York City

Carbon Emissions Caps and Energy Performance Requirements for buildings over 25,000 sq. ft.

Hefty fines will begin in 5 years

In April, The New York City Council overwhelmingly passed one of the most ambitious and innovative legislative packages ever considered by any major city to combat the existential threat of climate change, specifically focused on reducing and eliminating carbon emissions.

NYC Local Law 97 of 2019 (Intro. Bill 1253), a part of the NYC Climate Mobilization Act, requires large and medium-sized buildings, which account for nearly a third of all greenhouse gas emissions in the city, to significantly reduce their emissions.

Before 2030, buildings with more than 25,000 sq. ft. need to reduce their carbon emissions by 40%, and 80% by 2050. The very worst performing buildings will have to act by 2024 to curb their emissions. Hefty fines will be enforced starting in 2024 and will build until the goals are reached. You must act fast and have a plan in place by 2024.
