Climate Change

Mike Bloomberg believes that big cities must take the lead in reducing the threat of climate change. That's why in 2007, Mike announced a revolutionary sustainability initiative: PlaNYC 2030.

A wide-ranging, comprehensive initiative, PlaNYC aims to make New York the greenest city. Already, New York City has greened 15% of its taxi fleet, planted more than 800,000 trees across the five boroughs, and adopted the nation’s most ambitious green energy code. Dozens of City buildings have improved their energy efficiency, helping reduce carbon emissions and save the taxpayers money. From 2010-2013, Mike also served as Chair of the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, an association of major cities around the world committed to reducing carbon emissions and slowing climate change. He is now President of the C40 Board of Directors.
