List of Climate Smart Communities

New York State's Climate Partners

By adopting the Climate Smart Communities pledge, over 280 New York communities have partnered with their state government to build a resilient, low-emission future. These communities represent over 8.2 million people and 43 percent of New York State's population.

The list of member municipalities below is organized alphabetically by county. Each of the local governments listed has passed the Climate Smart Communities (CSC) pledge as a municipal resolution.

Climate Smart Communities that have achieved certification are in bold. To view the reports for these certified communities, visit the new CSC Certification portal (leaves DEC website) at the CSC website.

Send us your CSC pledge to get listed and join this network of climate leaders!
