The Solution

Our Policies

NY Renews is a coalition of more than 150 grassroots, state, and national organizations. We aim to make New York State the nation’s leader in tackling the climate crisis while protecting workers and lifting up communities.

We’re fighting for:

Worker creating solar energy panels

Good Jobs

Create thousands of clean energy jobs throughout New York state.

Group marching for environmental justice in Albany, NY

Environmental Justice

Support low-income communities disproportionately hurt by climate change with revenue generated by a fee to polluters.

Wind power farm

100% Clean & Renewable Energy

Foster a transition to 100% clean, renewable energy by 2050 with a benchmark goal of 50% by 2030.

Worker Protection

Advocate for economic justice in the transition to a 100% clean energy economy that puts workers and families first.

From Brooklyn, to the Bronx, to Buffalo, Syracuse, Rochester, Binghamton, climate change is already impacting New York State. If we pass the Climate and Community Protection Act, we have the ability to create a better future, with healthy communities, good, green jobs, and a 100% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.


These are the principles that guide our work

Member organizations agree to support the Jemez Principles (how we organize), our Points of Unity (what we stand for) and our legislative platform (what we want to achieve).

We believe that fighting climate change requires that we center values of justice and equity, both as an ethical imperative and a strategic advantage.
