New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Basil Seggos announced the latest round of communities to achieve certification as part of New York State’s Climate Smart Communities program which supports local efforts to meet the economic, social, and environmental challenges posed by climate change. By taking meaningful steps to mitigate and adapt to climate change, nine local governments met the criteria to be recognized as leaders for the first time. Thank you to all the hard work of our Climate Smart Communities Task Force for all their hard work!
