New York City Hosts Local USGBC Summit

Publish date:

NEW YORK, NY—New York City boasts 65 LEED-certified projects and over 600 registered projects, which made it a fitting location for the first of the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) five regional Building Performance Initiative summits; other cities included Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C. The summits were designed to start a dialogue between USGBC and the local building community about how to ensure that all green buildings perform the way they are intended and that our entire building stock is upgraded for measurably better energy, water, human health, and natural resources outcomes.

The summits are part of a larger initiative spearheaded by the USGBC in August, coined the Building Performance Initiative, which seeks to put in place a comprehensive data collection effort from all buildings that have achieved LEED certification. The initiative will put in place an appropriate analysis methodology of that data and provide feedback to building owners so they have better information with which to address any performance gaps that stem from predicted building performance versus actual performance. The data will be shared with LEED building owners and project teams to help close performance/prediction gaps in all commercial buildings that have achieved LEED certification.
