Green Buildings: The Role of Government Policy

Thursday, May 29, 2008
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The New York Academy of Sciences’ Green Building initiative turned its attention to an investigation of the policy imperatives that will drive a new era of sustainable design.

Two short lectures by New York State Deputy Secretary for Energy, Paul DeCotis, and by John Krieble, Director of Sustainable Design at the NYC Department of Design and Construction, set the stage for a panel discussion in which leading architects, engineers, policy-makers, and others, shared views and perspectives upon the critical question: what role is government playing in catalyzing success in our efforts to achieve urban sustainability? The event was moderated by Craig Kneeland, NYSERDA.
