The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) and the Mayor’s Office of Talent and Workforce Development just released the Green Economy Action Plan, a first-of-its-kind roadmap to growing NYC’s green economy. The plan identifies the jobs and sectors that will help the city combat climate change. Its recommendations will help put New Yorkers—particularly those from environmentally disadvantaged communities—in a position to benefit from the nearly 400,000 ‘green-collar’ jobs expected in New York City by 2040.

With buildings-related work accounting for nearly half of these jobs, we’re excited to welcome Nse Esema, Senior Vice President of the Green Economy team at NYCEDC, to Urban Green Live. On March 27, Nse will join Urban Green CEO John Mandyck to unpack the plan and discuss how NYC’s growing green workforce will accelerate building decarbonization efforts.
