The NYC Carbon Challenge for Hotels

Since 2015, 19 leading hotels in New York City have joined the NYC Carbon Challenge. All together these hotels represent more than 10 million square feet, accounting for over 12,000 rooms. Participating hotels will continue to make energy efficiency investments in their buildings over the next ten years, implementing a diverse range of strategies to achieve the 30 percent greenhouse gas emissions reduction goal. The investments made by these hotels as part of the Challenge are projected to reduce citywide GHG emissions by an additional 36,000 metric tons and result in an estimated $25 million in energy cost savings for participants.
