New York City Buildings Go Green

New York City Buildings Go Green

The Big Apple is raising the bar on environmental standards, as a growing number of businesses make conscious efforts to go green.

Two years ago, the building went through a $20 million renovation, which reduced energy usage by over 35 percent, and saved roughly $4.4 million per year. Now more than ever, building owners are able to see going green as a business imperative—something that can provide a competitive advantage that helps the company’s bottom line and is socially responsible as well.
