Many of us do it, many of us still find it challenging or just plain confusing.

Also find out how to avoid fines, improve your recycling program and get more tenants to recycle. Recommended for: building managers, supers, board members and anyone who wants to brush up on NYC recycling laws.
Hear about tips from Green from the Ground Up on reducing your buildings energy use and environmental impact. Learn about energy efficiency especially in the areas of: lighting, appliances and heating systems. Bonus: lower your fuel costs and utility bills. Hear about government incentives available for your building and sign up for an energy audit.
There are >1 million buildings in NYC and 1 billion sq. ft. of mostly vacant roofscape. This may be our most underutilized asset. Solar 1 will discuss 3 solar rooftop applications that have promise in the 5 boroughs: solar thermal technology, photovoltaic, and white roofs.
