Statement from DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos and OGS Commissioner Jeanette Moy on the Buy Clean Initiative

"On the eve of Climate Week 2022 in New York State, we applaud the Biden Administration for taking additional actions to further advance the nation's efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and tackle climate change head on. This announcement builds on the historic Inflation Reduction Act investments that will support state and local initiatives to decarbonize the economy and ensure the purchasing power of the federal government contributes to the sustainability efforts being made in our state. In New York, we are proud to work alongside the federal government and all of our partners to achieve our emissions reduction targets and a cleaner, more sustainable environment for future generations."
