Long Island CSC Coordinator

Develop Climate Action Plans

Cameron Engineering & Associates, LLP and the Sustainability Institute of Molloy College are working with Long Island's Climate Smart Communities (the towns of Babylon, Brookhaven, Huntington, Islip, North Hempstead, and Smithtown, and the villages of East Rockaway, Port Jefferson, and Woodsburgh) to develop climate action plans. We welcome the participation of the island's two cities, remaining towns, and many villages in the CSC program. With our assistance, participating communities will utilize the greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory for Long Island (expected completion - fall 2012) to plan GHG reductions and adaptation strategies for climate change, including sea level rise. Our CSC effort focuses on policies and codes that encourage efforts to lower GHG emissions by increasing residential and commercial energy efficiency and use of renewables, and supporting smart growth and transit. In addition to community-wide efforts, we are working with municipalities to lower the carbon footprint of their own facilities and operations. Interested municipalities can contact David Berg of Cameron Engineering or Neal Lewis of the Sustainability Institute for information on Long Island's Climate Smart Community efforts.

For detailed information, please go to the Work Plan and Year 1 and 2 reports "Important Links" on right.

The 2010 Long Island Regional Greenhouse Gas Inventory is also available at link on right. For county and town level inventories, please contact the Long Island CSC Coordinator directly as listed below.
