New York City already has the lowest per capita carbon footprint of any major city in America. Nonetheless, last month the city enacted legislation to improve the energy profile of buildings across all sectors. The mayor was instrumental in providing leadership.

The legislation creates a New York City Energy Code that existing buildings will have to meet whenever they make renovations; the code will be enforced by the Department of Buildings and goes into effect in June, 2010.
