We are excited to be joined by Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul as our Keynote Speaker. We are also honored to recognize Bombardier and Kuba Brown and the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) Local 94 for their commitment to environmental progress.

November 18th 6 PM – 8 PM
New York Yacht Club
37 West 44th Street

Under the leadership of Lieutenant Governor Hochul, this year was historic for the environment. More policies were enacted than we have seen in a generation. As the White House continues to overturn environmental progress, states like New York are leading the way. The centerpiece of this legislative session was the enactment of the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, the strongest climate legislation in the country, which will be a model for other states to follow. While the Trump Administration opens federal waters for drilling, New York fought back by enacting a ban on drilling off state waters, which will protect marine life and our vital waterways.  And, following decades of negotiation, New York finally passed congestion pricing, which will reduce emissions from the transportation sector – the #1 contributor to climate change. 

One of our top priorities is greening our transportation sector and expanding low-emission transit options. Bombardier is helping to achieve this by creating innovative and eco-efficient mobility solutions. New Yorkers commute on their subway cars, commuter trains, and airport transit systems every day. Bombardier is listed in the top 25 of the 2019 Global 100 Most Sustainable Companies in the World Index and appears there as the highest-ranked transportation company.

We are also committed to reducing emissions from New York City’s largest contributor to climate change – buildings. After years of advocacy, this April the New York City Council passed legislation which established emission reduction targets for large buildings. The bill will spur demand for clean energy and energy efficiency retrofits. IUOE Local 94 will be on the frontlines of these efficiency retrofits – its engineers are responsible for the operation and repair of the Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning systems in buildings. 

We hope you can join us to celebrate this work, as well as major legislative wins for the environment that include enacting the nation’s strongest climate law, expanding micromobility options, and passing congestion pricing. Become a sponsor or purchase tickets today!
