Mayor de Blasio and Sustainability in NYC

A recent Huffington Post article discusses the outlook on Mayor de Blasio’s possible stance on the city’s environmental and sustainability initiatives.  Some of the sustainability achievements (opinion of author) made under the Bloomberg Administration: “To achieve reductions in greenhouse gasses, Bloomberg went to the largest institutions in the city: the universities, hospitals, real estate and finance industries — and got them to sign on to greenhouse gas reduction targets.”  The low hanging fruit may be gone and Mayor de Blasio will have to work hard to determine the “next generation of sustainability initiatives”.

The author concludes– “Community based sustainability initiatives are the obvious next step and one that fits into the new mayor’s values and political style.”
