NYPA rolls out its 2010 - 2012 Sustainabilty Action Plan

The NYPA's Sustainability Action Plan rolled out this week with the publication of a blueprint for action ... and some action of its own -- the installation of a fuel cell at its Westchester County offices.  The plan combines NYPA’s longstanding energy saving and environmental conservation practices with future initiatives under one sustainability umbrella to achieve goals related to environmental stewardship, social equity and economic prosperity.  Entitled "Generating Sustainability," the plan is comprised of five sections representing NYPA’s major areas of activities: workplace, community, environment, marketplace and operations.  It includes 21 key focus areas ranging from health and safety, to stakeholder engagement and climate change adaptation.  NYPA has identified 41 separate actions that it will strive to complete between 2010 and 2012.
