The Climate Act: Tackling the Hard Parts
January 20, 4:30 – 5:30 pm on Zoom
New York’s Climate Leadership and Protection Act (CLCPA), passed in 2019, is one of the most ambitious climate laws in the world. It requires New York to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 40 percent by 2030 and no less than 85 percent by 2050. To get there, epochal shifts will need to happen across industries. On
a practical level: What is it going to take actually to weatherize all those buildings? How are we going to get all that solar built? How can we ensure that historically under-represented and overburdened communities participate in the scoping of the CLCPA and benefit from its climate justice provisions?
Join us for a virtual event celebrating the launch of the latest issue of the Clean Power Guide and a look at the practical implications of implementing the CLCPA. Moderated by Brian K. Mahoney, Chronogram Media editorial director; with Ryan Hawthorne of Central Hudson, Melissa Everett of Sustainable Hudson Valley; and other special guests from the worlds of industry and policy innovation.
