Welcome to MOS's web site. It has been updated and expanded to provide more information on topics we address, to make it easier to navigate, and to centralize information and resources.
As you browse our pages, you will learn more about the environmental issues that we address: City Environmental Quality Review (CEQR), which implements the State Environmental Quality Review Act in New York City, and Local Law 86 of 2005, the City’s Green Building Law.
While MOS's work is not always visible to the public at large, what we do affects all New Yorkers. We work with both City agencies and private entities to ensure that environmental impacts of City projects are disclosed to decision-makers so that decisions are based on full knowledge of the project’s effects.
We implement Local Law 86 (LL86) ensuring that future building construction funded with City capital dollars is as environmentally friendly as possible. This contributes to the City’s goals of reducing consumption of vital resources such as energy and water, as well as advancing the City’s greenhouse gas reduction agenda.
I hope you find our site informative. Please visit it often to see news, announcements of public meetings and other information on projects of importance to all New Yorkers and the City's progress toward sustainability by building green. If you have any questions about MOS's work, please feel free to contact us. On behalf of all MOS staff, thank you for visiting.
