UNITED NATIONS HQ GOES GREEN
If there ever were a building in the world that should be as green as possible, the United Nations Headquarters in New York would probably be it. The good news: the UN seems to agree. The almost-60-year-old building, one of the most influential and iconic buildings on the Manhattan skyline, will be undergoing extensive renovations that will transform the building into a model of energy efficiency for all to follow.
The renovation process will take a lengthy 7 years, and will come with a large price tag, hovering at a cost of at least 1.2 billion dollars (though much cheaper than the estimated 2 billion that would be spent in the next 25 years if nothing was to be done). Here’s to pro-active green initiative.
