We are back at the LEED Certified Javits Center for our 5th year in New York City.
New York continues to be on the forefront in reducing energy consumption and has one of highest percentages of green space among US cities. It also has the highest percentage of workers commuting by public transportation, bicycle, or by foot.
The city’s sustainability program PlaNYC has helped achieve the cleanest air in 50 years, adding 865,000 trees and five million feet of reflective rooftop to the urban landscape and has helped to reduce the carbon emissions by 19% since 2005.
