The Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY) is the City’s leading real estate trade association representing commercial, residential, and institutional property owners, builders, managers, investors, brokers, salespeople, and other organizations and individuals active in New York City real estate. REBNY thanks the New York City Council Committee on Environmental Protection for the opportunity to provide testimony on Intros 265, 271, 274, and 2460.

Confronting climate change requires collective effort from both the public and private sectors to deal with the crisis at hand. REBNY supports City and State emissions reductions goals and we are proud to represent members who are innovating in the fields of building construction and technology to reduce carbon footprints, increase energy efficiencies, and take concrete steps to strengthen climate resilience.

We would encourage the City Council to work with the industry to find practical, data-driven solutions to inform their approach to these problems.
