Topic: Environmental Policy Predictions NYC 2014

 

As Mayor de Blasio has begun to make 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 some environmental programs be scaled back?

 

Though climate change was not a sound bite during the campaign; environmental issues will likely gain more traction in the months ahead, especially after NYC recently experienced several of the worst winter storms on record, which many see as another harbinger of climate change.
