Local Law Number 97 of 2019 (as amended by Local Law Number 147 of 2019, “Local Law 97”) was enacted by the City of New York to amend the New York City Charter and Administrative Code to achieve reductions in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 (See, §28-320 and §28-321 of the Administrative Code). The specific goal of Local 97 is to reduce city-wide carbon emissions by forty percent (40%) by 2030 and a total of eighty percent (80%) by 2050. This is accomplished by requiring buildings to retrofit their systems with more energy efficient systems or purchase certain permitted carbon offsets.
