Real Property Climate Change Committee

For those in favor of a “green” America, this is the place to be.

The Committee on Climate Change’s mission is to promote the development and application of best real estate and scientific practices, guidelines and protocols for the usage of real property in the United States, with a view toward reducing real estate’s carbon footprint. The Committee intends to organize CLE and other programs to educate the NYSBA community, owners, tenants, and their attorneys on how property can be made both more sustainable and potentially more valuable. Educating attorneys to help their clients navigate the “green” process is a key goal of the Committee. The Committee welcomes all attorneys interested in learning about, discussing, and sharing information on “green” issues.

Committee membership is open to members of the Real Property Law Section.
