The City of New York has set an ambitious goal of reducing carbon emissions City-wide by 80 percent by 2050. If that goal is to be achieved, our sectors and citizens must work together to do so. The NYC Climate Action Alliance will be holding a panel discussion focused on how New York City’s businesses, institutions, NGOs and individuals can collaborate to assist the City in achieving its objective. The program will focus on what the City is doing to advance its 80×50 goal, how New York City businesses, institutions and NGOs are supporting the City in reaching 80×50 and the progress being made by the NYC Climate Action Alliance towards creating a multi-sector alliance to amplify these actions.Speakers:
