NYPA's Sustainability Action Plan has been developed by a diverse team of NYPA employees to incorporate the "triple-bottom-line" approach of environmental stewardship, social equity and economic prosperity throughout the Power Authority. Generating Sustainability enables NYPA to tie many of its long-standing practices with several new initiatives under one sustainability umbrella.
The plan is built around five key areas that encompass all facets of the Power Authority: workplace, community, environment, marketplace and operations. Each of the plan’s 21 focus areas comes with a high-level commitment and one or more specific action items. While the plan sets a long-term vision for the Power Authority, the strategies to reach these goals are intentionally short-term. The focus is on tangible, targeted initiatives that NYPA can undertake to have an immediate positive impact.
This Sustainability Action Plan is comprehensive yet strategic, ambitious yet realistic, and will bring increasing value to NYPA’s employees, its stakeholders and, ideally, everyone who lives, works or visits New York State.
