Cities to Undergo ‘Greening’

Scan:
The William J. Clinton Foundation, in collaboration with the C40 Large Cities Climate Leadership Group, is implementing the ‘Clinton Climate Initiative.’  Under this initiative, sixteen major cities around the world New York, Chicago, and Houston, will be renovating municipal-owned buildings with green technologies.  Major financial institutions will be contributing $1 billion to the renovations, and companies such as Honeywell International and Siemens AG will conduct audits to ensure that the expected energy savings are obtained.  If not, they will pay the difference or make further modifications to the buildings.
