Urban Green To Lead Building Resiliency Task Force

At the request of City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, Urban Green Council will convene a special Building Resiliency Task Force of leaders in the NYC real estate community. The charge of the Task Force is to take an in-depth look at how to better prepare our buildings for future storms and infrastructure failures. Work will begin immediately, with plans to release recommendations by the summer of 2013.


Urban Green Council’s track record in spearheading the Green Codes Task Force and successfully advocating for New York City legislative changes (with 37 proposals now enacted) makes them ideally suited for this project. They will be working with the City Council to identify key stakeholders and potential Task Force members in the coming weeks.
“I can’t think of a more critical and timely project for our organization right now,” says Urban Green Executive Director Russell Unger. “Resiliency has always been an important component of sustainable building, but now it’s really front and center. We are honored to take on this task at the request of the Speaker.”
