New York State Climate Law Tracker

The New York State Climate Law Tracker monitors New York's progress in implementing its path-breaking Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, Environmental Justice Law, Community Risk and Resiliency Act, and Accelerated Renewable Energy Growth and Community Benefit Act. 

Actions can be sorted by deadline or responsible entity, and readers may use the keyword filter to search for actions based on subject matter, statute, or whether an action is overdue. Overdue actions are also highlighted in red. The tracker provides links to relevant abbreviations and definitions, a list of officials who are responsible for implementing New York's climate laws, and related resources such as blog posts and articles.

Readers may download the tracker's data as a spreadsheet by clicking "Download CVS." Please note that in Excel, § will appear as "§" due to a glitch in the program.

Readers may also be interested in the accompanying New York City Climate Law Tracker and in Compilation of Recommendations to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions in New York State.
