Hours before making the official announcement, former president Bill Clinton shared details of his Energy Efficiency Building Retrofit Program with attendees of Cushman & Wakefield’s annual economic and real estate luncheon in New York City late last month.Clinton urged more than 1,500 owners, developers and brokers to incorporate sustainability into their business practices since buildings account for a significant portion of global greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption.
