Sponsored programs are generally long-standing initiatives that are close collaborations with our sponsors – usually City of New York agencies.
The NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services Division of Energy Management (DCAS DEM) is a prime example. As sponsor of the Energy Data Lab and the Technical Services Team (to name just two), the agency works with CUNY BPL leadership to define research questions and deliverables that directly support DCAS DEM’s mandate to reduce GHG emissions in municipal buildings.
On the Training and Compliance side, the NYC Department of Small Business Services and the Mayors’s Office of Climate and Environmental Justice are longtime sponsors of Building Operator Training, while the Sustainability Help Center is sponsored by the NYC Department of Buildings. Both initiatives are at the intersection of public service and training, designed to support the buildings community as its members work to reduce GHG emissions and comply with recent local building laws.
