   "NYC CARBON CHALLENGE" 


PLANYC is a NYC sustainability program, PlaNYC,  encourages businesses, universities and other private organizations to cut greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality and reduce the impact of climate change.

Ten companies will participate in the Carbon Challenge and commit to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from their offices by up to 40 percent in the next 10 years. 

They include: American International Group, BlackRock, Bloomberg LP, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, Google, JetBlue Airways, JPMorgan Chase, and PVH. 

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.
