By Council Members Rosenthal and Kallos

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to the city’s reductions in greenhouse gas emissions

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Subdivision c of section 24-803 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as amended by local law number 147 for the year 2019, is amended to read as follows:

c.   Carbon dioxide equivalent emission inventories. (1)   No later than September 17, 2008, and no later than every September 17 thereafter, the office shall complete and post on its website an inventory and analysis of citywide emissions measured in carbon dioxide equivalent for the previous calendar year, and shall calculate the percentage change in citywide emissions measured in carbon dioxide equivalent for such calendar year, relative to such emissions for the base year for citywide emissions.

                     (2)   No later than September 17, 2008, and no later than every September 17 thereafter, the office shall complete and post on its website an inventory and analysis of city government emissions measured in carbon dioxide equivalent for the fiscal year ending in the previous calendar year, and shall calculate the percentage change in city government emissions measured in carbon dioxide equivalent for such calendar year, relative to such emissions for the base year for city government emissions. Such inventory and analysis shall include a list of current and future capital projects intended to reduce emissions from city government operations pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision b of this section, and, for each project, an estimate of the associated expected emissions reductions resulting from such project, a project timeline, the total projected budget for the project, and the schedule of planned commitments. Such inventory and analysis shall also include an estimate of the date by which the emissions reduction mandate pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision b shall be achieved.

                     (3) No later than September 17, 2021, and no later than every September 17 thereafter, the office shall complete and post on its website an inventory and analysis of greenhouse gas emissions from the portfolio of buildings owned or operated by the New York city housing authority measured in carbon dioxide equivalent for the fiscal year ending in the previous calendar year, and shall calculate the percentage change in greenhouse gas emissions from the portfolio of buildings owned or operated by the New York city housing authority measured in carbon dioxide equivalent for such calendar year, relative to such emissions for calendar year 2005. Such inventory and analysis shall include a list of current and future capital projects intended to reduce emissions from the portfolio of buildings owned or operated by the New York city housing authority pursuant to paragraph (3) of subdivision b of this section, and, for each project, an estimate of the associated expected emissions reductions resulting from such project, a project timeline, the total projected budget for the project, and the schedule of planned commitments. Such inventory and analysis shall also include an estimate of the date by which the emissions reduction goal pursuant to paragraph (3) of subdivision b shall be achieved.

                     § 2. a. Definition. For purposes of this section, the term “capital commitment plan” means the capital commitment plan required to be published three times each year pursuant to paragraph 1 of subdivision d of section 219 of the New York city charter.

                     b. Until the emissions reductions pursuant to paragraphs (1) and (3) of subdivision b of section 24-803 of the administrative code of the city of New York are achieved, each capital project set forth in the capital commitment plan that is intended to reduce emissions in accordance with such mandates shall be so designated in the capital commitment plan.

§ 3.  This local law takes effect immediately, except that section two of this local law expires and is deemed repealed after the emissions reductions pursuant to paragraphs (1) and (3) of subdivision b of section 24-803 of the administrative code of the city of New York have been achieved.
