The Green Economy Action 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. The green economy promises to grow rapidly and become a core part of the City's overall economy in the coming decades, but it will take a continued and concerted public-private effort to achieve this in a way that serves and uplifts all New Yorkers. 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. The plan includes provisions for sustainable food systems and highlights the Plant-Powered Carbon Challenge
