PlaNYC: Getting Sustainability Done
New York City has been a leader on climate action since the release of the first PlaNYC 16 years ago, and today our leadership is more necessary than ever. Climate change has shifted from a threat on the horizon to a recurring aspect of our weather with impacts felt disproportionately in vulnerable communities – leading to hundreds of preventable deaths every year. At the same time, the benefits of climate action are increasingly clear in cleaner air, better mobility, safer homes, and growing green jobs and businesses. Responding to and preparing for climate change means improvements to our daily lives today, and a future that is more equitable, healthy, and resilient.
When we bring our voices, our action, and our advocacy to our schools, our homes, and our workplaces, we can create a more sustainable and resilient future for the 8.6 million people who call our five boroughs home.Take Action Now
