Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Tuesday early progress on green building programs in conjunction with the eighth annual Climate Week held in the city, which runs from September 19-25. With a new president of the United States being elected in just weeks, “Climate Week NYC 2016 will gather leaders from business and government to demonstrate how continued investment in innovation, technology and clean energy will drive profitability and lead us toward net zero emissions,” according to the website.
The programs implemented by the de Blasio administration aim to help the city reach “80×50,” an 80 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
