Driving Sustainability, Resilience, and Performance with LEED for Cities/Communities in the NY Olympic Region

CSC Webinar on Thursday, March 14, 2019, at 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

LEED for Cities/Communities is one of the newest rating systems developed by the US Green Building Council. The program provides a structure for communities that are looking to measure their performance in a rigorous and comprehensive way. It helps communities monitor progress toward greater sustainability by tracking a wide range of environmental, social, and economic metrics.

Join us for this webinar to learn more about LEED for Cities/Communities and how it relates to New York's Climate Smart Communities (CSC) program. Attendees will also hear about how LEED for Cities/Communities has been implemented in New York’s Olympic Region. Speakers will include Erik Backus, New York Upstate USGBC Board Chair and Clarkson University Professor, and Craig Randall, Mayor of the Village of Lake Placid.
