New Climate Leadership: The Growing Focus on Climate Balance, Governance & Action

Now, less than two years later, several countries are leading the way by establishing nationally-determined balance years—dates when their net climate impact will be neutral or better.

IMPACT: Identifying Business Opportunities Created by NYC’s 80x50 Commitment

Reducing the City’s greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by 2050 is the cornerstone of the City’s climate policy. Reaching this 80x50 goal will require transformative approaches to how we use and consume energy in the City. Whether it’s retrofitting NYC buildings, electrifying transportation, being smarter in how we collect and process solid waste, or shifting our energy supply towards renewables, an incremental approach to business-as-usual is unlikely to be sufficient.
