Green Technology

|

It's time to incentivize innovative practices to turn developers into a force for environmental good. Lawmakers must provide a framework so that development will occur in a way that will minimize adverse environmental impact, preserve the existing character of a community, and improve it for the future.

In Albany, I will work to put in place incentives to encourage the implementation of green technologies by developers operating in the state. For state-funded projects, like new public housing facilities, lawmakers should make green technology a part of the bidding process. Government contracts should be awarded not just based on which contractor can accomplish a task at the lowest cost, but also based on who can best integrate technologies that will provide for the long-term environmental interest of the community. I believe that our state government can lead developers to put New York City on the path to becoming a model for responsible environmental stewardship.
