NYC Sustainability (MOS)

The New York City Mayor’s Office of Sustainability is a team of architects, data scientists, engineers, policy advisors, and city planners working to create a city where the air is clean, the streets are green and where our 8.5 million residents produce zero waste and zero carbon. Guided by the OneNYC plan, 80x50 report, and Executive Order 26, MOS works to minimize NYC’s contributions to climate change from the waste, transportation, energy, and building sectors. By tackling the challenges posed by climate change with innovation, creativity, and inclusivity, we are improving the quality of life for all New Yorkers and protecting our planet at the same time.



GreeNYC is dedicated to educating, engaging and mobilizing New Yorkers to help New York City meet its ambitious sustainability goals of generating zero waste and reducing greenhouse gas emissions 80% by the year 2050.

GreeNYC helps New Yorkers take easy actions with big impacts – both for themselves and for the city as a whole. The message: by reducing energy use, eliminating waste and choosing a more sustainable lifestyle, New Yorkers will make their lives better for themselves and their families, save money AND make NYC the most sustainable big city in the world!
