setting the sustainability standard


The Javits Center’s sustainability initiatives—from its high-efficiency glass-encased façade and energy-saving green roof to its advanced recycling practices—not only conserve energy, but also set the industry standard. As a part of our recent renovation, we installed more than 100 energy-efficient HVAC units, new energy-efficient lighting and new recycling containers throughout the facility. We also invested in a cutting-edge energy dashboard that allows designated engineers and employees
 to monitor consumption levels for electric, gas and water. Taking stock of all these initiatives, we’re on track to achieve LEED Silver certification by meeting the goal of exceeding New York State’s mandate of reducing energy and water consumption by 20% by the year 2020. We’re also reducing office waste by more than the required 10% annually.

looking ahead


Through our innovative sustainability efforts, the Javits Center is poised to sustain a green environment far into the future. Most importantly, our dedication to sustainability embodies everything that the Javits Center stands for: world-class technological innovation, resourcefulness and an unrivaled commitment to excellence.
