Film Highlights Building Retrofit Leadership in Houston and Chicago

Chicago and Houston, participating C40 Cities, are dramatically reducing the energy consumption of their buildings – saving both energy and money.

Chicago is retrofitting the Richard J. Daley Center to reduce the building’s CO2 emissions by more than 2,500 metric tons annually, saving $9 million over a 15-year period. In Houston, the City is implementing a project   to retrofit its entire portfolio of 271 buildings, reducing overall energy use by more than 30 percent and saving millions of dollars each year.  Through conversations with City officials and project partners, a new film produced by the Clinton Foundation explores how Chicago and Houston are delivering their groundbreaking projects.
