New Yorkers understand that saving energy and reducing waste at State agencies, local governments and schools not only helps save the environment, it also saves taxpayer dollars. The Office of the State Comptroller is trying to do our part to make New York State more green.
Under a Green Initiative launched by State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli in September 2007, the State Comptroller’s Office is:
- Conducting audits into whether State agencies, public authorities and local governments are complying with environmental and energy requirements;
- Investing $500 million in companies that develop clean technologies through the New York State Common Retirement Fund; and
- Making sure the State Comptroller’s main office at 110 State Street in Albany is a model of environmental efficiency.
