Resiliency & Sustainability



In February 2022, OGS Commissioner Moy established the new Division of Resiliency and Sustainability (R&S). The team provides technical assistance and policy guidance to State agencies and authorities in order to meet New York's climate goals. R&S is working to support multiple State initiatives including the conversion of the light duty fleet to all zero emission vehicles by 2035, a statewide 85% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, and adapting state assets and operations to the increasing impacts of climate change.

Electric Vehicle Fleet Event

A Look Back on This Inaugural Event

The Office of General Services and the New York Power Authority were proud to showcase a variety of light-duty electric vehicles and charging infrastructure in our State’s capital at the Inaugural New York State Electric Vehicle Fleet Event. This event gave several hundred Fleet managers, sustainability coordinators, and members of the general public the opportunity to learn about our important work toward meeting Governor Hochul’s goal to transition all light duty fleet vehicles to electric vehicles by 2035.
A variety of electric vehicles assembled on the Empire State Plaza for the Fleet Event, June 6, 2023.
OGS is committed to guiding agencies in meeting the State’s ambitious climate adaptation goals.

Executive Order 22
Leading by Example:

Directing State Agencies to Adopt a Sustainability and Decarbonization Program

Governor Kathy Hochul signed a nation-leading Executive Order to accelerate efforts to make State operations more sustainable. As New York commemorates Climate Week, Executive Order 22 builds upon progress made by the GreenNY Council to continue streamlining the administration of the State's lead-by-example sustainability and climate directives and sets new goals for the environmental performance of State agencies. Governor Hochul also announced that State agencies and authorities, representing an estimated $50 billion in investments, have committed to achieve net zero in their investment portfolios by 2040. This bold action ensures New York State's financial resources are aligned with its clean energy and decarbonization obligations as enacted in the 2019 Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act.
