A note from the North Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce’s Environmental Initiatives Committee:

The New York City Council has voted on the Climate Mobilization Act. Read more about what this means for our city, here’s what they have to say:

The Climate Mobilization Act is a down payment on the future of New York City — one that ensures we lead the way in the ever-growing fight against climate change. Today, we sent that message to the world by enacting the boldest mandate to reduce carbon emissions, tackling one of the biggest drivers of climate change.

As always, the Environmental Initiatives Committee would like to hear from you. Contact us at: [email protected] with any questions, issues, or to receive updates on upcoming programs and events.
