plaNYC Mayor's Challenge to Hospitals

   

PlaNYC is Mayor Bloomberg's effort to prepare New York City for one million more residents, strengthen our economy, combat climate change, and enhance the quality of life for all New Yorkers. The plan strives to establish a greener, greater New York. 

The Mayor's Carbon Challenge was issued to universities in 2007 and hospitals in 2009.  The challenge goal is to reduce carbon emissions at universities and hospitals by 30% within ten years.  Seventeen universities and eleven hospitals joined the challenge.  New York Hospital Queens is a participating hospital in the Mayor's Carbon Challenge.   

At year end 2012, four universities and one hospital reached their 30% reduction goal.  New York Hospital Queens is the first hospital to achieve the 30% carbon emissions reduction goal.  The goal was reached in three years time.  Mayor Bloomberg has labeled these facilities "early achievers". A press conference was held on April 18, 2013 to recognize these achievements and to announce the next phase of the carbon challenge program, the commercial building sector. 

"The Mayor's Carbon Challenge is a forward-thinking program that encouraged New York Hospital Queens to accelerate its sustainability efforts.  By reducing our environmental impact, we help our buildings and our planet get healthier, which supports the health and well being of our patients and our community."  - Kevin Mannle, Associate Vice President for Facilities Management, NYHQ
