Eco-sustainability: the UN Sets a Good Example
July 6, 2007
Built in the early 1950s, based on a project by Le Corbusier, the “Glass Building”, UN headquarters in New York, will soon be the object of a total renovation.
Work will begin next year and be completed by 2014. The duration of renovation is due to the fact that work will be conducted by sectors of 10 floors at a time, so as not to interrupt the United Nations’ activity.
The purpose of the operation, which will cost 1.9 billion dollars, is to adapt the building to current necessities, as well as to reduce its energy needs by 30%, improving its efficiency and ecological impact, on the basis of the environment model in the United Nations Programme.
