Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA)

New York State is taking ambitious action on climate; the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act of 2019 (CLCPA) commits to 100% zero-emission electricity by 2040, and a reduction of at least 85% below 1990-level GHG emissions by 2050. The CLCPA represents one of the most aggressive clean energy and climate agendas in the country.

As outlined in the CLCPA, the New York State Climate Action Council is a 22-member committee that will prepare a Scoping Plan to achieve the State's targets. To draft the Plan, the Council is working in consultation with seven sector-specific advisory panels and two justice-focused working groups, which will prepare specific recommendations to the Council regarding the State's sustainability, resiliency, and equity goals.

The City is actively engaged in these important CLCPA processes, and has submitted comments to several advisory panels regarding their recommendations. Comments are publicly available in English, Spanish, Chinese (simplified and traditional) and Russian, below.
