Local Law 97 would require 50,000 large buildings throughout the city to cut emissions by 40% by 2030 and get to "net zero" by 2050.
A new report titled "Getting 97 Done" details ways the city is looking to help buildings.
This includes identifying government funding for upgrades, providing owners with advice, enforcing deadlines and compliance, and assisting the state in decarbonizing the city's central systems.
But if buildings have shown a "good faith effort," the city may ease financial penalties.
Rohit Aggarwala, the commissioner of the city's Department of Environmental Protection and the city's chief climate officer, joined host Errol Louis Tuesday night on “Inside City Hall” to discuss Local Law 97.
