The 2020 NYStretch Energy Code, which will go into effect on March 3, will significantly change
how buildings in NYC are designed and constructed. Buildings constructed under NYStretch will
use 11 percent less energy over their lifetimes than those built under today’s code, driving green
building practices across the city.

Join the Cross-Learning Alliance, a partnership between Urban Green Council, AIA-NY and
ASHRAE New York Chapter, on January 28 to highlight the important changes to the new code.
Industry experts will detail the code’s changes, explore how the new code relates to Local Law
97’s emissions caps, and discuss what architects, engineers, builders and building owners
should focus on.

*As a Cross-Learning Alliance event, member prices are available to ASHRAE, AIA and Urban
Green Members.
