New York State Climate Action Plan Development Process

December 7, 2009 

Governor Paterson signed Executive Order No. 24 setting a goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in New York State by 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050. The Executive Order also created the Climate Action Council (CAC) with a directive to prepare a draft Climate Action Plan (CAP) by September 30, 2010. The CAP will assess how all economic sectors can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to climate change, and identify the extent to which such actions support New York’s goals for a clean energy economy.
