ACRELive! Local Law 97 and the Wave of Coming Environmental Laws That Will Change How Buildings Operate

Nearly half of the states in the country have adopted greenhouse gas reduction targets. Dozens of new laws and regulations to govern the emission of greenhouse gasses are in effect now or are under negotiation at the state and local level. Unlike LEED or other voluntary measures these laws are mandatory and provide for significant penalties for non-compliance.

The farthest advanced of these laws is Local Law 97 in New York, which is the generally acknowledged as a model and a case study for other jurisdictions. Reporting and fines (anticipated to be measured in the millions of dollars for many buildings) start in 2025 and NYC estimates that 75-80% of all buildings in New York will have to make improvements to comply with the 2030 standards.

We have brought together two experts to discuss Local Law 97. William McCracken is a leading lawyer addressing the legal issues associated with Local Law 97 compliance issues and Leanne Harvey is a senior building systems consultant addressing the ‘real world’ steps that owners, tenants and other stakeholders are taking. It will be a lively discussion about the costs and impacts of obligations that are rarely addressed by real estate documents.
