The Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act directs the Department of Environmental Conservation to issue an annual report on statewide greenhouse gas emissions, pursuant to Section 75-0105 of the Environmental Conservation Law (ECL). The Department is preparing the first annual report to be issued in 2021 and is seeking public input on the format of the report, the organization of information to be included in the report, as well as the methodology and analysis used to determine annual statewide greenhouse gas emission levels.

Written comments or feedback may be provided at any time and can be mailed to Suzanne Hagell, NYS DEC Office of Climate Change, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-1550 or emailed to climate.regs@dec.ny.gov. Include “Annual Report” in the subject line of the email.
