New York Partner Kevin Healy will moderate a NYC Climate Action Alliance panel on Sept. 21 for Climate Week NYC. Panelists will discuss the progress New York City has made to meet its goal of reducing carbon emissions by 80 percent by 2050, current efforts to advance and amplify these actions, and the various ways the city’s businesses, institutions and NGOs are supporting this goal. Climate Week NYC is an annual international summit for driving climate change launched by The Climate Group in 2009.
