"NYC CARBON CHALLENGE"
The companies join 17 universities with more than 35 campuses that accepted the Carbon Challenge when it began in 2007, and the 11 largest hospital organizations that joined in 2009.
The Carbon Challenge builds on the City’s own goal to cut emissions in municipal buildings by 30 percent by 2017 and will help meet the PlaNYC target to reduce emissions citywide by 30 percent in 2030.
The City of New York is more than halfway to meeting its goal, having achieved 16 percent of its emissions in the last six years.
