On February 3rd, the New York League of Conservation Voters Education Fund, Enterprise Community Partners, and NYU Wagner will host a policy forum on Green Preservation of Multi-Family Affordable Housing.
New York City has made ambitious commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent by 2050 and to build or preserve 200,000 units of affordable housing in ten years. Buildings account for roughly 70 percent of our emissions but affordable housing building owners and developers face a number of obstacles and policy challenges to making their buildings more sustainable.
What solutions can jointly move these two goals forward in the years ahead?
This question and more will be answered at NYLCVEF’s Forum on green preservation of affordable housing on February 3rd.
The forum will feature two panel discussions of leading experts from government and multi-family housing organizations. First, we will take a look at the role of affordable housing on the road to “80 x 50.” Second, we will examine the challenges and learn from multi-family developers and building owners on the ground.

Our goal is to identify a set of realistic strategies to help us meet NYC’s ambitious climate and housing goals. After the panel, NYLCVEF will produce a set of concrete recommendations to guide policy makers on their next steps.
