NYC's Green Economy Action Plan

In 2023’s PlaNYC: Getting Sustainability Done, the City committed to creating a “comprehensive green economy industry action plan” that defines the green economy and lays out NYC’s path to seizing the opportunity it presents. This Green Economy Action Plan, jointly developed by the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) and the Mayor’s Office of Talent and Workforce Development (NYC Talent), delivers on that commitment. The Green Economy Action Plan is a crucial step for New York City to become a global green economy leader.

Informed by engagement with more than 100 stakeholders and partners from all parts of the green economy, the Plan sets forth the first ever universal understanding of the green economy in New York City and establishes a baseline to understand its growth over time. This Action Plan details 63 City commitments to catalyze businesses, nonprofits, and everyday New Yorkers to collectively build a sustainable, equitable green economy ecosystem in New York City.
