10 Ways to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Create Jobs in New York City

December 16, 2014

A new report, Climate Works for All: A Platform for Reducing Emissions, Protecting Our Communities and Creating Good Jobs for New Yorkers, details 10 proposals that would help New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio achieve his goal to reduce the city's greenhouse gas emissions 80% by the year 2050. In addition to achieving the desired emission reductions, if the city follows these proposals, it would not only make the city more resilient, but it also would create 40,000 jobs a year. The report was produced by the Alliance for a Greater New York, New York City Environmental Justice Alliance, New York City Central Labor Council, Blue Green Alliance and the AFL-CIO.
