Fighting Climate Change in NYC
As the largest city in the world to commit to 80% greenhouse gas reductions by 2050, New York City is leading the fight against climate change. We thought we’d take this opportunity to briefly highlight some of the ways we are helping to implement this ambitious goal.
Through OneNYC, we are heading up the multiagency effort to construct and maintain sustainable Green Infrastructure practices like blue and green roofs, and rain gardens throughout the 5 boroughs with our Green Infrastructure Program.
In addition, we’re taking strides to restore wetlands that will protect ecological habitats and improve NYC Harbor water quality (Alley Creek is one example).
And this is only the beginning. We’re very proud to help build a greener, greater, stronger and more resilient NYC!
