Supporting a Strong Economy
New York’s commitment to new technology and renewable energy is reinvigorating the State’s economy
We are committed to a cleaner, greener, healthier economic future. Natural disasters caused by climate change have already cost our economy billions of dollars and New York is doing something about it - leading the U.S. in wind- and clean-technology patents and investing in workforce training programs to usher in the next generation of innovative thinkers. And our efforts have created thousands of green jobs in communities across the state — from factory workers to engineers, to HVAC installers and contractors.
To ensure a just transition for all New Yorkers, we’re securing labor commitments for our State’s world class labor force, focusing on skill set development for disadvantaged or underrepresented populations, and investing in trainings for industries affected by technology advancements and climate change.
