Environmental Policy Predictions: NYC 2014

Tuesday, Feb 18, 2014

As Mayor de Blasio makes appointments, the sustainability community is watching to see what his environmental agenda will be. How do Mayor de Blasio’s recent appointments align with his campaign’s “Framework for a Sustainable City”? What will it take to successfully translate his campaign rhetoric into the no nonsense business realities of NYC? Will Mayor de Blasio build on Bloomberg's environmental sustainability record? Will de Blasio’s track record as a city councilman translate into his environmental promises or with the economy still struggling will environmental programs be scaled back?
