PlaNYC: A Greener, Greater New York

Created: 3/31/2007 - Updated: 2/20/2018

Abstract

PlaNYC is New York City's climate change strategy. All of PlaNYC's strategies - from reducing the number of cars to building cleaner, more efficient power plants to addressing inefficiencies in buildings - will contribute to their long term emissions reductions target. In addition, it outlines a plan to embark on a long term planning effort to develop a climate change adaptation strategy, to prepare New York City for the climate shifts that are already unavoidable.
