A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to the establishment of agency-wide climate emission plan

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

Section 1. Chapter 24 8 of title 24 of the New York city administrative code is amended by adding a new section 24-807 to read as follows:

§ 24-807 Climate emission reduction plan.  a. Definitions. For the purposes of this section, the following terms have the following meanings:

Climate emission plan. The term “climate emission plan” means the plan for the level of greenhouse gas emissions reduction necessary to meet previously identified climate reduction goals.

Affiliated governmental organization. The term “affiliated organization” means a not-for-profit organization that is associated with or manages city-owned properties, including manufacturing and distribution hubs and other infrastructure that receives its operating budget from the city.

b. No later than January 15, 2020, and no later than every January 15 thereafter, the office of long-term planning and sustainability, or such other agency or office as the mayor shall designate, shall develop for each mayoral agency and for each affiliated governmental organization a climate emission plan projection, annually and concurrent with the fiscal budgeting process.   

c. At the end of each fiscal year, there should be an annual review of mayoral agency performance of emission reductions. Upon each annual review, any mayoral agency or affiliated governmental organization unable to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions sufficiently to comply with previously identified climate emission plan projection shall be evaluated to identify and target areas where additional reductions may be possible.

§ 2. This local law shall take effect immediately.
