Terrapin’s Rebecca Macies was selected for Urban Green Council’s 2017 Membership Committee.

Urban Green Council is the New York affiliate of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Their mission is to transform NYC buildings for a sustainable future. They believe the critical issue facing the world today is climate change. Their focus on climate change requires them to focus on energy and other resource management. As energy and other resource management improves, we can deliver a more resilient, efficient, healthy and affordable city.
