High-Performace Buildings


About This Video: In 2011, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Johnson Controls Inc. (JCI), and Goldman Sachs committed to work with their project partners Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL), Greenprint Foundation, Malkin Holdings, Vornado Realty Trust, and YR&G, with funding from Rockefeller Foundation, on a project to grow demand for green build-outs of commercial tenant spaces, and energy efficiency upgrades to office buildings. The commitment aims to significantly reduce carbon emissions and energy use, and in the process create many new jobs. The commitment makers will work with participating commercial tenants to incorporate energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality measures into the layout, design, and construction of their premises. The partners will carefully measure and document, and aggressively publicize the economic benefits generated by the high-performance measures, with the goals of commercializing the business case and providing a roadmap for green tenant build-outs
