Welcome to MOEC's web site. It has been updated and
expanded to provide more information on topics we address, to make it easier to
navigate, and to centralize information and resources. A
Citywide CEQR calendar has been added as a new feature.
As you browse our pages, you will learn more about the environmental
issues that we address: City Environmental Quality Review (CEQR), which
implements the State Environmental Quality Review Act in New York City, and
Local Law 86 of 2005, the City’s Green Building Law.
While OEC's work is not always visible to the public at large, what we
do affects all New Yorkers. We work with both City agencies and private entities
to ensure that environmental impacts of City projects are disclosed to
decision-makers so that decisions are based on full knowledge of the project’s
We implement Local Law 86 (LL86) ensuring that future building
construction funded with City capital dollars is as environmentally friendly as
possible. This contributes to the City’s goals of reducing consumption of
vital resources such as energy and water, as well as advancing the City’s
greenhouse gas reduction agenda.
I hope you find our site informative. Please visit it often to see
news, announcements of public meetings and other information on projects of
importance to all New Yorkers and the City's progress toward sustainability by
building green. If you have any questions about MOEC's work, please feel free to
contact us. On behalf
of all MOEC staff, thank you for visiting.
