Our Mission

Create a green economy and clean environment for our future

We’re on a mission to reduce New York State’s carbon footprint, make our communities more resilient, and adapt to a changing climate. Through thoughtful planning and collaboration, we will tackle climate change and create new opportunities for future generations.

Our efforts will breathe new life into our economy with well-paying clean energy jobs, new industries and business opportunities, while improving the health and quality of life for all New York families and communities. Creating a green economy also means spending less on fossil fuels, keeping our energy dollars in the local economy, and in the pockets of hardworking New Yorkers.
